Pantoum Poem – The Rain Is Not Afraid

This poem was written for a Creative Writing class in December 2010.

The Rain Is Not Afraid

Falling from the sky, plummeting to Earth
The rain is not afraid
To take the plunge, and not look back
Like you, it feels no fear

The rain is not afraid
The skies may darken, fill with lightning
Like you, it feels no fear
The thunder pounds like a heartbeat

The skies may darken, fill with lightning
You are still here for me
The thunder pounds like a heartbeat
But I am only listening to your heart

You are still here for me
You may disappear, fade away
But I am only listening to your heart
And I know I will bring you back someday
