In Conversation by Candace Meredith


The rain is such

A drought the

little girl says

and other oxymorons.


The bitter dryness

and seclusion of

being indoors – a

cause by the rain

(a metaphor among

the silence).


The rain is a drought

her father says like

love is a red rose

he eyes her mother –


conversely, rain is

an exquisite sunshine

she interjected –

how do you say

says the little girl.


How can you hate

the rain, her mother

jokes, when you love

all the flowers she says.


I told you love is a red

Rose laughs

the father….

Conversely says the daughter

rain is love.
