Rain // A Poem

Happy Wednesday, readers! Pardon the absence of a post last weekend... I was gone on a youth trip and forgot to schedule something ahead of time. ;) 

I have another poem today. Do you enjoy seeing poems on Chosen Vessels? Should I continue sporadically with them or stop throwing these cringe-worthy writings y'all's way?  




sitting on the porch 
rain pouring down 
it patters on the roofs

ringing against the metal
making pelts on the road 
soaking the grass

the dampness encompasses me 
as the storm grows 
stronger 
louder 
increasing in fury
but I don't fear it 

there's a special peace in the rain 



with rain droplets on leaves 
and trickles in gutters
it enters a dirty world 
but leaves it different 
clean
refreshed 
renewed
revived  

the same effect Christ has 
when He enters our hearts 
our dirty hearts 
sin-sick lives 
made clean 
whole 
perfected 
in His love and grace

P.S. I recently found out that a friend of mine's mom is battling breast cancer. She is a blogger, and some if not all of you are probably familiar with their names, but the family doesn't wish to have that information disclosed at this time. God knows who they are, and I know your prayers would be appreciated. <3

  1. That's a cool poem! I love how you always take the feelings and emotions of a moment and put them into staggered words that describe it exactly. Thank you for that.

    If you keep posting them, I'll keep reading them. :)
