“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet


When we wait outside

We get drenched by little misty clouds

And crouch in spheres to hide


We are facing trunks

The trees that own them bending over

And joining in our huddles


It rains in sheets

When they wrap you up in your bed

We dare the escapees


They run too fast

The wet sinks to the frozen bones

We doubt they will ever last


Sometimes “Enough!”

Is all you can really say to the sky

And that is all

  1. Beautiful. The trouble is, we can run and hide but, eventually we have to stay and face whatever comes our way. Lovely imagery.

  2. lovely poem, it really put me in mind of autumn rain storms and hiding under the boughs of dripping pine trees – great stuff!

  3. beautiful capture of how our mood and the weather reflect and change our mind.

  4. vivid capture of stormy time,

    love the imagery your words paint.

  5. love that last stanza…”Enough!”
    nice piece of poetry.

  6. what a load of drizzle! I certainly think this has a great ending.. a sudden end, just like the rain.. although it won’t ever listen to your pleas..

  7. I am humbled by the variety of talent I see. The creativity and imagery is wonderful.
    Good job!

  8. Quite subtle poem..I like all of it..and it all just leaves me in amazement

    Nice write. I can certainly identify with this. Over here in Sweden where it should be a nice and snowy winter wonderland now, we’ve been getting endless rainstorms. Enough is enough.


  18. Love the last verse. saying enough when limits are crossed should become a priority for us. Nicely done.

  19. Sometimes I want to scream “enough” too, whether it be at the bad weather or at life in general. Sometimes you just gotta take getting rained upon though. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Here’s mine for the rally: You’ve Taken My Voice

  20. This applies to rainy/stormy weather as much as it does to a series of mishaps.

    Sometimes “Enough!”

    Is all you can really say to the sky

    And that is all

  22. autumn rains a re so cold and make us wish for the snow that does not seem to penetrate into our bones

  23. Yes, sometimes we do get tired of getting drenched, so ‘enough’ is about right.
