Rainhues



Autumn drizzles rain in gray,
Dripping
             slowly
                     from
                           dying
                                  leaves,
Painting windows with dusty stripes,
Drenching the soul with sadness,
Endless,                   endless drops.
   




Winterís rain is brilliant blue.
Icy needles puncture snow.
Freezing fingers caress your neck,
Piercing your rubber armor,
Endless,                   endless drops.
   




Spring rains bring a chartreuse glow,
                   Floating
   lightly 
                           on fragrant
            blossoms,
Giving the air a clean new scent,
Coaxing sprigs of green,
Endless,                   endless drops.
   




Purple cloaks the Summer rain,
                               Driving,
                    dancing,
         dashing
  to earth,
Lit by sparks of Vulcanís wrath,
Regal in its splendor,
Endless,                   endless drops.
