Sarah has always astounded me at the seemingly effortless way she can transform thoughts into a poem. I’ve read many of her poems and often come away feeling so very blessed to be her friend. Now, without further ado, let me present to you Refreshing Rain by Sarah Rudolph:
soon the winds begin to blow
And I hear the distant thunder
I begin to worry so.
soon becoming pouring rain
then my thoughts begin to scatter
and my heart begins to strain.
Saying, “Child, why do you fear?
Do you know what rain is bringing?
Just you wait and persevere.
But it needs to come today
It is doing you a wonder
you’re afraid child, you can pray.
When it stops things will be greener
and you’ll see what you have faced
was a strong revealing torrent
washing of your dirt and waste.
When it’s over you’ll see clearer
why you needed rain to come
and you will be on step nearer
to who I’ve made you to become.”
