Let It Rain - Natalie Crick

Let It Rain - Natalie Crick

Trees are like songs

In the air, sighing,

A green blush

To evening sky. 

Raindrops on the windows

Are already starting to melt.

The mourning dove

Coos lost love. 

I am a held breath,

Face turned to beaten sky,

Dark and purpled. 

I am the bowl. 

I am the collector. 

Let it rain

Liquid solitude,

Translucent at dusk.
