Learning To Be Friends With The Rain


c Mogan Lyons 2016

c Mogan Lyons 2016


if i put each of these days

end to end

how many times around the world

would they go?


no matter what


the only choice


living in the peace

so many would die for

i walk the dogs

 old growth

cross clear brooks

splash for drinks


sometimes this sense of failure

is all I’ll ever be

sometimes that loneliness

is all I’ll ever see


it’s the price for being true

it’s the cost of no surrender

the double helixed blessing

of being me


maybe tomorrow

the courage will come

all that ever was –

    Loved that poem so on target for we who beat to different drummers.

    Driving from CT to FL. Let my traveling companion mr. Finnegan a Chihuahua dash hound mix out in the rain this morning

    I wish you and your family a blessed and happy New Year. I greatly enjoyed your poetry. It is inspired me to begin writing myself.

    The poem should be good for every Filipino during those dreary months of rain and more rain.  Best to all and God bless. e/s From: Pdlyons’s Explorations To: edruiz38@yahoo.com Sent: Monday, January 2, 2017 4:55 AM Subject: [New post] Learning To Be Friends With The Rain #yiv6016926547 a:hover {color:red;}#yiv6016926547 a {text-decoration:none;color:#0088cc;}#yiv6016926547 a.yiv6016926547primaryactionlink:link, #yiv6016926547 a.yiv6016926547primaryactionlink:visited {background-color:#2585B2;color:#fff;}#yiv6016926547 a.yiv6016926547primaryactionlink:hover, #yiv6016926547 a.yiv6016926547primaryactionlink:active {background-color:#11729E;color:#fff;}#yiv6016926547 WordPress.com | pdlyons posted: ” ~if i put each of these daysend to endhow many times around the worldwould they go?~no matter whatyesthe only choice~living in the peaceso many would die fori walk the dogs old growthcross clear brookssp” | |
