MAGPIE/ Prompt #84


                                                         photo/ Mag 84

ENTICING....that's Magpie Tales for this week...thanks, Tess...



PATTERN

Here hovers the Rain God
pinning his will
like a bespoke garment,
to my silhouette.

Hallowed mist
slicks my skin,
my spirit goes bang
on the downbeat.

I want to surprise
with wisdom and grace,but

Brother Raven and I,
the usual act,
take wing for sightseers.

Why does the fated
weary me so?

Lynn,
Introspective; the rain does that often. Leaving mind and body cleansed if not refreshed.
