Rhythms by Sue De Gregorio-Rosen, RN, CLNC, Contributing Editor 




a steady rain

aqueous, unfiltered, adaptable

the essence is the wetness of my soul  

and its sound an invitation to heal


I sit in the darkness and wait

and feel where the rain falls,

slowly, stronger

and magical


the rain beckons me

to take a breath

disguises itself

as a Summer’s breeze


listening I hear the whisper 

of the trees

have you ever danced

in the forest alone 


when you arrived here 

I felt you weave the enigma

a quivering, undeniable charm,

impassioned with a soothing vision


did you dance in the rain

like a warrior

fierce as a stoning gale

a storm without measure


my heart beats are resolute

I am not frightened

boundaries are futile and in vain

my love is guileless and calm
