it's pouring here this morning. such sweet relief to wake up in the night and hear the rain on the windows. such a distraction to wake and think of biking through it!!! steven
You are a biking warrior, my friend.
what that sun doesn't knowwould burn ol' sol
Snowing here. Rain would be so nice. Good poem.
Very clever take on the prompt, Tess. ~laurie
We are supposed to be blessed;the rain gods spoke andI believed.What am I to do?It hasn't happened.
Just so , here today ! thanks-
I'm in the same classroom.
[oh, it's a strange weather...delicate form of being!]Hugs, TessLeonardo B.
Smart poem...too bad the teacher didn't pick you to recite it!
Oh, but if the sun would call and show its prism of beauty...Nice write.
Wonderful Tess. "Ahhhhh" was my first thought!
You're too eager. It called on some poor person trying to sleep, instead!
Yet despite the rainI must water the flowers.Oh, the irony!
Heh-heh, Fireblossom, you're so right.
Rain? We've still got two feet of snow on the ground!
A perfect description of the weather here today Tess. Synchronistic international weather forecasting - I would expect nothing less.
classroom of rain....perfect
Reminds me of my favorite Charlie Brown quote..."you can talk to the moon, but the sun won't listen". The sun tends to be proccupied alot of the time : ) The classroom of rain sounds refreshing.
The rain it raineth on the just,and also on the unjust fella.But mostly on the just, becausethe unjust stole the just's umbrella!
I love that little ditty Cro. Perfect for today, since it happens to be pouring on the just.
A Tess Kincaid poem has entered by quote book. I love it! and the picture drawn is so vivid.
I wish we'd get some rain.
Doin' my rain dance, Ellen!
The snow overnight turned to rain this morning. Yesterday I put out pots of pansies to beckon spring. Luckily they have been released from their unexpected nighttime cover and all their little faces are smiling into the still chill new day.
I wanted to let you know that I've started posting my manuscript again, and I hope to continue until the entire book has been placed on my blog. This way, at least someone will get to read it.http://danamazing.blogspot.com/
We hope for rain on the high desert ... it means Spring may have found its way over the Cascades, Your April is sweet.
Short but nice.
Rainy & gloomy here in Cincinnati this morning - but warm for a change! I hate it when the sun plays favorites & ignores me :)
I'm not the teacher's pet today, either.
We had a little snow yesterday, did you? I do like learning from rain.(Maybe the sun didn't call on you because he had been expelled.)
made me laugh :)
all this rain talk cuts deep! the heat is heating up and we won't see rain again until December ...
Ha, this was fun and forlorn!
OOh...I love this! So many layers of rain in so few words! Rick
I awoke to rain this morning..the world always feels so fresh, so new after the storm....love it.
Teachers used to be our suns, what happened?
Neat idea that the sun-teacher will not recognise you in the rain. But seriously, most don't reallise the UV still comes through. My solar panels tell me so!
Oh, I like that!
Ford, you've got solar panels? That's so great. We're checking into getting them at Willow Manor.
im a teacher and id call on you any day! excellent image..thx
April showers mean sweet May flowers Tess.
Ha! Very clever, short and sweet. We're in a severe drought here, and could easily reverse your image.
Lovely words Tess!
What a punchy three lines! I love the classroom metaphor.
Nor me. Sigh.
One of my favourites of yours!
I always liked to teach on a rainy day; the students were often more focused because of the weather. Always a concern, however: was I reaching them all?

Ah yes..but the sun will come out tomorrow!!Another chance!
You are so good at this. Read this many many times.
The sun is playing distant this year, to be sure! Nice piece!
The sun as your teacher. Does that make you the drip "in a classroom of rain"? But seriously there's meat in the sun as teacher. After all we are totally dependent on our gaseous companion; and we humans still don't get the concept of mutual intersependance. Does having ones "hand up" again place us as 'centre of the universe'? Thank you for your visit to my blog and your encouraging words. Your commitment to your extended family of writers is remarkable and valued. Steve
Only 16 words, but nothing shallow about this one.
Nice and sunny here!Anna :o]
It is the opposite here!Here is mine:misty dew
lovely.not calling on us today either.....and don't know about there but they are saying snow showers for tomorrow! ah, april may very well be the cruelest month!
Beautiful lines..An entire world in it!Monika
And finally the sun is calling on me. Lovely Tess truly lovely!
oh, I treasured the rain yesterday... it let up just enough for me to have a quick hike and head back in .Now it's much colder than predicted and there are flurries !! gah.
....in the classroom of life...it can seem that way sometime...this is brilliant Tess....i think it is one of my favorites of yours!!:-)
As ever, you say so much with an economy of words.
A perfect pairing of picture and words! Wow!
The sun for a teacher? Nice idea...
The impact of a shorter poem -- it's like a punch.Tremendous.Beautiful.
Amazing, perfect - potent, heart-propulsive stuff.
Willow,No rainbows today?rel
oh that nasty sun....hope he shines on you soon...bkm
I love this! Such a charming analogy with these few words.
so beautiful ... so perfect ... :)
Why doesn't weather listen! Sun should shine when we say so! Rain Rain, go away, come again another day! Love this Tess!
Shoulda brought an apple with you to class. Maybe this will serve. - Brendan
I think your message here is intensely personal. It's very intriguing and leaves every reader to their oen interpretation - which means it's a good poem, however brief.Thank you for visiting mine.Take care. LW.
Why call on you?You always know the answer!(Give the other kids a chance!)Nice piece, Tess! :)
It's gloomy and raining here today. I have my hand up...

"classroom of rain" How fitting this image, Tess. We all have our own sun's ignorance, but don't let it spoil the summer.
Don't let the sun catch you crying......Solar panels? Brilliant! My parents had them in their Cyprus home years ago. Very impressive - they really worked.
Beautiful. Stopping by from Magpie Tales
Simplicity is another form of honesty and beauty. Thank you for these lovely lines.
