Last night I walked along the river, after the rain – Images and a Poem

Sometimes when I am out walking and taking pictures, I also use my phone to jot down some words then later use these to write a Poem.

I feel that words and poems – along with images are connected with one another in a big way. I love to share both here on this blog and I often share poems from people who share their work on poetry web sites, matching them to what I feel are related images I have taken.

This time the post is mixing my own Poem and Images from an evening walk along the river Suir, after a rain storm at the start of June.


Last night I Walked along the river after the rain

Last night in my dreams along the river I walked,
it rained and rained, The floods of June.

There will always be sunshine after the rain
Perhaps I walked , perhaps even ran,
Towards the Setting evening Sun.

Along the river after the rain 1.

It lights up the river, I see every rushing and flowing drop,
The warmth from its light can calm every dreaming fear.

After it sets below the trees,
my dreams much deeper,
still linger throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish at dawn’s early light.
