washes away all
the sins and fears and memories and anger

allows us a new start,
a fresh perspective,
a clean slate

feeds the flowers,
rejuvenates all of us

refreshes, cleans
and makes everything look young and new,

And to the ears…

…rain soothes,
wraps us in a blanket,
safe in sleep

About Icinia

Icinia McIntosh has been writing all of her life. One of her cherished childhood memories is the feeling of absolute joy derived from writing a story...not only the sheer pleasure of putting thoughts on paper, but the knowledge that her words would be read, and enjoyed, by others was intoxicating indeed. Today, Icinia writes mostly poetry, with the occasional foray into the realm of short stories. Icinia McIntosh was born and raised in Canada and still makes her home there.
