Another one of my rainy day poems. I happened to find this one after a bit of snooping.

Fantastic, Martine. Breathtakingly beautiful. The imagery you convey is just so wonderful and touching. "Little oracles commanded by fate." Wow, just where did you learn to manipulate words with such finesse and prose? You're so talented - it's a crime that you underestimate yourself with characters when you're capable of writing such majesty :)

The rains are indeed little oracles of fate as you clearly stated. In fact i see the rain as a conglomerate of the blessings and destinies from The Almighty. May God open the flood gates of heaven and embarrass you with showers of blessings. Why you'd you be embarrassed writting rhymes. I understand that it limits you and restricts your flow. But the truth remains that rhyme is the soul of every poem. Its cool if you disagree.

Thanks for the lovely comments. Rain is an enchanting worldly wonder given by God. I'm not embarrassed to write rhyming poems, I just meant in the past, when I was just starting to write, all my poems were love poems that rhymed and they are just embarrassing to look at now! I agree with your statement that "rhyme is the soul of every poem" one of the most meaningful poems I’ve ever written is "Poison of The World" and it rhymes :) I'm really glad you liked this poem though; thank you again for reading :)
