Raining Glory by Neall Calvert

Poem title: Raining Glory Poet name: Neall Calvert Poem: Rain spattering          the tin trailer roof overhead                 falls on my soul,                         taps on my door, says May I  drop in on you,         get to know you?                 Wet you with transparent wisdom?                         Wash something clear?   Before I knocked, I journeyed         that heaven you thirst after                 in the eyes of strangers.                         Bloom the desert spaces                                 of your mind                                          —in me. End of poem.
