Poem:  Solitude in the Rain

Solitude in the rain, my soul feels, void again

In the month of February,

I am becoming more enlightened

Still, I wonder when this feeling is going to end

Missing the way, he strokes my face

His loyal and impressive embrace was intense

I believe the way he comforts me—sees me;

Like a beautiful, gracious, goddess—friend

“It was not a pretend!”

So, I encourage myself—as I daydream,

Raindrops poetic gems

Solitude in the rain, gentle,

Precious, like the breeze, “Spring comes again!”

“I am making good friends—most of all with myself!”

The raindrops softly cleanse, the trodden earth

As I peer through my spectacle lens.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
