Forgotten Rain Dances

April 22, 2008
By Cliona Roberts, Katonah, NY

The rain pours down,
making a passive song
on the compressed sand.
Tears mix with rain
as I tilt my face
toward the bursting sky

The rain cleared away
everything that had
built up over the summer.
Finally I could set it all free
as I spun in circles

The sand damp beneath
my feet as I walked along
the dark shore.
The rain beat down
upon the forever churning waves

Nothing stopped for me,
life went on,
people grew older,
and changed.
But most of all you forgot.

You forgot about
our rain dances
in the shadows of the night.
You forgot how it helped
keep us young.
You forgot.
