“The Weather Outside” by John Grey


It’s raining outside
but gently,
like fingers massaging the roof.
I thought a bright sun
would be necessary
but when the body
makes up its mind
to heal,
then any weather will do.
A roll of thunder
knitting bones
wild wind imitating
sickness blowing out of here
and the lightning begins.


John Grey‘s latest book is “What Else Is There” from Main Street Rag. He has been published recently in Agni, Hubbub, South Carolina Review and The Journal Of The American Medical Association.
