Rain immortal
Placeholder Image

Not stopped by any army

It can wash away all things

Man has made.


Not solid.

But like a sword

It will slash and kill

Without leaving the stains of blood


Not changed by the news media

Only to make the headlines

Speaking out, louder than any leader or president


Only uses it self (as a weapon)

Like a super hero

No one can touch


Uncontrolled in a world

Of schedules and clocks

It doesn’t use time


It’s strength is beyond anything we have

Or use; not human.


It comes and goes

Not asking permission where it should fall


It cleans and changes the landscape

Not caring what boundaries it may cross.


It embodies its own intellect

No computer, phone or speech

Language not needed


Rain, immortal
