RAIN

THE BREEZE, THE BREEZE,
GENTLE BREEZE.
CARESSING THE LEAVES.
OF THE TALL STRONG TREES.

BREATHE THIS GENTLE WIND
THINK… GOD’S BREATH.
BREATHE DEEPLY
HIS BREATH MAKES YOU FREE.

OH, THE GLISTENING LEAVES!
AH, THEY TELL ME
IT IS RAINING.
RAINING? WHAT?, WHEN?
IN THE SILENCE OF
THE CARESSING BREEZE.

GOD’S BREATH, OH SO GENTLE
ALL IS BLESSING
DRINK, DRINK DEEPLY
THE GENTLE SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS.

THE RAIN, IT CLEANSES
DARE TO WALK IN THE RAIN?
YOUR HEAD HELD HIGH?
RAINDROPS ON YOUR HEAD
RAINDROPS ON YOUR FACE
FALLING FROM THE SKY.
HIS SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS
MAKES YOU FREE.

GENTLE GOD, GENTLE FATHER
LET ME WALK WITH YOU
THROUGH YOUR SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS.
CLEANSE ME
YOUR GENTLE RAIN SEEPS
MY SOUL WITH PEACE
GENTLE PEACE, OH GENTLE FATHER.

BRING ME TO THE REALMS
OF STILLNESS AND OF QUIET PEACE
MY GENTLE GOD AND FATHER.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
