Words are Gifts

The Visitor Came


Through the gloomy

Dusk we knew

He would be here.

The sound

Of the wind

Alerted us

The cool breeze

Was well received

Drops that

Hit the window

Greeted us

The trees swaying

Welcoming the rain

The tear stained glass

Shared the arrival

Signs of

The visitor’s

  3. I love the way you built suspense and even a bit of mystery in this short poem. I assumed the visitor was an animal. Great job building this up.

  5. I’m so glad I read your previous post on anxiously awaiting the rain. It made this poem that much more enjoyable knowing a bit of your background and relationship with “the visitor.” This was awesome. I think you inspired me to try a post writing in this style. Keep up the great work!

  7. Lovely tribute to the coming of rain. This is a great sequel to your earlier post about waiting for the visitor. I think linking the two posts would be wonderful for your readers. LIke: “The sound / the wind,” “Trees swaying / welcoming the rain,” “The tear stained glass.” They evoke vivid images.
