Stacey Anderson: Rain
'Rain' was written when Stacey was attending the Nature and Wellbeing course that was run by Shirin. This poem is her observations of people she has seen when it's raining.
Darkness has enveloped the light
The wind blows strongly
The rain lashes on the windows
Leaves that spin in the dry, stay still
Water collects on surfaces
Motor vehicles disperse the water as they pass
People wrestle with umbrellas
Trying to keep hold
Trying not to fly away
Those with no umbrellas drip water
Look like they swam here
Water collects at their feet
From their clothes
They can’t get any wetter than they are now.
