Rain by Wolfgang Suschitzky-Charing Cross Road, London, 1937

Perhaps if I run, my tears will be hidden by this rain

No one will see the salty deluge escaping my black eyes

From primal screaming and thrashing, I must refrain

You’ve left me and that means the last of many goodbyes

Now driving my body tiredly down this London Lane

The grey of my heart reflected in these gloomy grey skies

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. “From primal screaming and thrashing, I must refrain” — what an evocative line. It says so much about her emotional state and that line is the perfect close. It brings it all full circle some how and it hints that maybe things are on the mend since she started out with mentions of black and then moved to gray–a lightening–or a light at the end of the tunnel? Maybe I am reading too much into this 🙂

      1. Ach .. know what you mean, though actually here it’s 5° C. but they tell me that the weekend will see warmer weather. How odd. I think I asked you, but I don’t remember (sorry, I’ve given up smoking and my concentration is still a bit off) what area in the State are you?
