Rain On Summer Snowflake

 
 
Rain on Summer Snowflake flowers
Gathers through the hours -- yes,
We heard it on our backporch roof
But unless we go outside for proof,
We must pursue an indoor truth:
Divide by season, calendar days,
Moments where we must be --but
There are no fractions of infinity.

  1. Dear Geo., I did get this in my feed but have just not been up to commenting most of the time. I'm sorry. Everything seems like a huge, huge effort these days. Maybe I need to get out of my head more often, though. This is a lovely poem and accompanying photo. I wish we were having rain here instead of snow. And I wish we had flowers like those here. They are like little magical hanging lights. I hope you are well - you and all your family.

    1. Dear Baili, thankyou for your helpful compliment! I've lately neglected my 2 poetry blogs because of family concerns. However, resolutions are underway. The flower, which we call "Summer Snowflake" is Leucojum astivum in botanical parlance. It appears in late Spring ahead of any summer flowers it neighbors. California has suffered drought for more than a decade, but a little spring rain are all these flowers need.
