After the Rain {Guest Post- Cassie}

Friday, October 15, 2010

Autumn is, without a doubt, my favorite season of the entire year. 
I love everything about it. 
I love the chilly nip in the air. 
I love sweaters. 
I love hot tea. 
I love reading by the fireside. 
I love cozy socks. 
I love quilts.
I love how the weather is perfect for writing. 
I love the start of school. 
I love Thanksgiving. 
But, most of all, 
I love the rain. 

Something about rain always strikes my fancy and inspires me to create. It inspires me to be myself. It inspires me allow my inner artist to show itself. It awakens my poet's soul. 

After the Rain
An Ode
By Cassandra Noelle R.
A glimmer of sunlight
Shines through
The golden glow
Vanquishes the streams
Of rain from the
Emerald flora glitters
From the dew and
Little pools gather
Enter into this
New World
And discover this
God-given beauty
Gilding flowers with
Turquoise pearls of

Curious creatures are
Peeking their noses out of
Their warm, dry

Like a silent tiptoe
It breaks its furlough, a hesitant
Pitter-patter from the
Now, rapturously watch
As the sky
Opens up once
