Petrichor

raindrops pixa

That earthy, pleasant scent we all know

but can’t quite describe from rain falling

on dry ground. A word from Greek

“petra” for stone but “ichor” for what

flows in the veins of the gods.

Studies in Relativity On A Summer Rainy Day

I was thinking about an Einstein quote while watching the rain falling.

“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.” ― Albert Einstein

That inspired today’s ronka poem.

summer rain

 

The rain has made the day longer

than twenty-four hours. The air is thick.

We walk slower. Clockworks struggle a bit

to advance. Time and space bend me

and this 5/14’s of a rainy sonnet.
