Mississippi Raining


standing in front of the mirror
I watched as words
fell from a crack in the side of my head -
words that smelt
like a warm Mississippi summer rain
running slow – towards hot
like reading Faulkner
in the shower

  21. Thank you for visiting The Friday Forgotten and linking your post. Your imagination and creativity should never lie dusty in a dark corner of your blog. We are happy to help clear away the cobwebs.

    Your words are nostalgic and full of powerful imagery. I could feel the thickness of the rain ruining my book as I read with you.
