Listen to the Silence

Rain falls in silence
But I hear and see its presence on which it falls
Resounding to its wet, cold heavy stomps
My metal roof pings in pain
High and forgotten rust comes
Like an open sore, too long ignored
Soft grass squishing beneath my feet
Wringing out the excess
My shoes trample it down
Giving no thought to what it has provided me
Glass windows clouded and smeared
With its dried leftover tears
And waits for someone else to erase
Even silence is a loud voice
That can inhabit every empty space

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
