Red Rain

Red Rain

In the Rain, by Franz Marc

rain, red and relentless, falls
bathing the world in
a river of regrets
torrents of blood that
fall in sheets
washing away security with
waves of terror

In Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge #41: In the rain , she offers In the Rain, by Franz Marc, with five suggested words:  rain, red, relentless, river and regrets. I see the people in the painting and think… Who could smile, knowing this?
