Is this how stone hears rain?
What an odd question to pose.
But there it is:

Is this
How stone
Hears rain?

For now, today,
this moment,
this hour,
this house.
this body,
this grain,


As rain
drapes over the eaves
and runs hollow
on stucco.

And in this place,
at the center of all things,
where each stone is a stone

Rain is rain,
rock is rock,
and one thing
repels another.

  1. Very contemplative interaction . Great subject. In the UK we have Wales where slate roofs turn to black plastic in the persistent rain. Great poem. Don’t go mad, us poets are needed.
