Slices of water

Cut through

The dust gathered

From your day.

The words that hurt,

The voices that offended,

And the actions

That broke you,

The rain washes them


And puts

All of your pieces

Back together




From → Photos, Poetry

  1. Amazing photo gave life to the poem. Rainy days can make the pain seem less. Thank you for the excellent poem.

    • Rainy days always work for me. Thank you for reading, John, and I’m glad you liked the photo 🙂

  2. It does somehow washes away…but sometimes it cries along…(with me) ☺
    Beautiful poem…heartfelt ❤

  3. Reblogged this on poojycat and commented:
    making me pending on those moment, beautiful poem

  4. very expressive photograph as well – did you shoot it? (if yes congrats) Nice poem as well, but I am more of a photography guy tbh 🙂

    • A friend of mine shot it… I am merely the subject in the photo, so all I can claim to this one is the poem! 🙂

  5. Perfect! poem as a machine greater than the sum of it’s parts.

  6. sure she is reborn,in the rain…

  7. “…. the dust gathered from your day” lovely phrase and I love the idea of rain “putting all the pieces” back together. Good piece.

  8. Absolutely beautiful! This is a truly amazing piece… well done 🙂 -JSCK

  9. well done

  10. Wonderful! Really touched me

  11. I needed that poem Sylvie, really needed it, almost more than a real rainfall, but surely more, as your words can be revisited to wash away, rejuvenate, piece by piece. There is something about a downpours that really do magic. And its sensual too. Your picture reminds me of the difference between rain on clothes and rain on skin, of welcoming the pouring rain and not hiding. I love that natural reflex – that you look upwards to be refreshed. A ‘first nation’ raindance only in shorts and boots in a thunderfng downpour is one of my best little memories. Thanks – not will read it again.

    • typo – ‘not’ should read ‘now’ sorry.

    • Well I’m glad to have rejuvenated you and left you with a little bit of magic that a downpour can bring. Rain is definitely meant to be felt on the skin, I think. There is something so wonderful and refreshing and cleansing about it.

      Thank you for stopping by, Managua… I’m always glad to see you here 🙂

  12. Just discovered your poems, this is really top-notch. And yes, the photo adds to it. Well done! Looking forward to reading more …

    • Thanks, Paul! That’s very nice to hear and I hope you do read more. I will check your poems out, too…

  13. so simple. and absolutely perfect. i too love the rain and stand in it every chance i get. sometimes even with my tongue out 😉

    • Me too! But the rain seems to land everywhere except in my mouth.

      Thank you 🙂
