This is a LIONS SHARE MAJESTY'S blast from the past piece - what I call "AN ARCHIVE ARK."
TODAY RAIN CRASHED MY PARTY
Thunder claps rage in my soul,
Today Rain came as a rude party crasher
“Who invited you, Rain,” I angrily ask.
"Stormy weather,” Rain boastfully proclaims.
“I do not want you at my party –
Rain, Rain, go away”
Smugly, Rain informs,
"I am here to toast
the dismal atmosphere
that arrived with me.”
I stomp furiously –
“My heart aches
from the rainy tempest
Will you not leave me be?”
Rain roars with wicked “satisfied” laughter.
We argue on
while all around us
my party guests revel in fun –
because it is not raining on them
Why is it that sometimes when it rains,
people don’t share their umbrellas?
Who cares that it is raining on me?
While I pondered my Rain misfortune,
a strong knock came at the door –
I left Rain standing in a puddle
and went to answer the knock.
It is Storm Chaser – we call him Chase.
I am beyond glad to see him
Chase confidently strides in,
surveys the party scene,
glances dismissively at Rain,
smiles at me and asks, “May I have this dance?”
I happily nod
and off we go
to dance to the song,
“Rain Can’t Stay.”
Chased away in defeat
Rain makes a hasty exit.
We did not stand Rain
to remain any longer than necessary
There are "seasons" when we need the Rain,
but with its presence the party can continue -
Brief interludes of rain can bring
renewed appreciation for the SON shine
that is inevitable.
