Solace in the rain

I'm letting the sound
of rain
silence tongues
that speak only lies.

Voice of the world
snickers of evil
cry of my own flesh
be still.

Drops hit roof
deck, windows
with rhythm
that surely
matches
that
of God's
own
heart.

A melody that soothes.

A call to seek shelter
under mighty wings
that comfort and restore.

Songs of joy
that overcome
darkness, fear
pain.

Praise
in a downpour
that lifts eyes up.

This was written in response to L. L. Barkat's Random Acts of Poetry prompt at High Calling Blogs.

the poem is as soothing as the rain it speaks of - thank you for reminding me of His sheltering wings.

Praise in a downpour that lifts eyes up.

That is what I want too. These are heart words that beat right off the page.

Blessings.

I love the idea of praise in a down pour. Like a washing away that opens us to joy.
