    Rumble Bang the sky grows dark
    left is not a single spark
    the clouds move in
    The storm's signal to begin
    Flash Crash lightning streaks fly
    As they travel across the sky
    Faster then the human eye
    Now is when the heavens brawl
    Pitter-patter the rain starts to fall
    Down upon the earth below
    Across the ground it must now flow
    Cleansing the earth of it's troubles
    As the water gently bubbles
    problems rinse down the drain
    With all our worries and all our pain
    Pitter-patter pitter-patter
    As the rain falls down

      i liked this write. i love rain and i loved how you described it as washing worries and troubles away. i think that the whole scene you painted with your words is beautiful and you get a four.

      This was a great poem to read. I absolutely love the rain and this poem describes it so well.
    I could really picture it happening.

      I really liked this
    As You know I also have a deep rooted Love of the rain
    This write described the rains beauty very well
    I agree with Epiphany a little though
    I do think shorter quicker lines would stress the beauty of the rain a little more
    I am not criticizing this write at all As I believe you definately captured the rains beauty
    God Bless

      oo! I LIKE!
    though when i read the title i was thinking along the lines of "little feet" so the rain was a nice surprise ;)
    the imagery is good
    the flow feels a bit rushed...but only 'cuz there's not much to make a person pause in effective places
    the only other thing that felt off to me was the line:
    Smash a tree bites the dust

    it dint quite seem to fit the rest of the poem

    other than that...it's GREAT
    you know...its amazing how many wish the rain could just wash all our problems away
    but...if wishes were horses beggars would ride!
    keep writtin'

      I thought it was fine as it was - if it aint broke - then don't fix it ! This was not broken - it was very descriptive and very good.

      I like your wording and I think it would work really well if you separated the words more - without using punctuation. Prose is free but it could be more easily read, i:

    Rumble Bang ~
    sky grows dark
    clouds move in
    Flash Crash lightning
    streaks across the sky ~
    a tree becomes dust
    Pitter-patter the rain falls
    upon the earth below ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
    As it falls
    it cleanses
    the earth of its troubles
    Its worries are washed away
    Our problems wash down the drain
    Pitter-patter pitter-patter
    As the rain falls down

    Just an example of shorter line placement.
    I love nature pieces and you seem to like them too! Great!
    Love,Peace,Joy! tif

      nice write...the flow was nice and the imagry was overall easy to grasp. I"d have to say there is only one thing that might make this better...try using commas and other puntuation. good write in all.
    Keep writing.

      Very nice work. Since you siad be critical, I will endulge you. lol. I flet your ryme was very goos until you got to the last 4 lines Actually I liked the last two lines as is. But the two above them could use a little twaeking. As for the flow, you were off a bit, but that was because you have a habit I do, add more words then needed to a sentence. I'm accused of this more times then I care to count. lol. Other then that, you did a great job with this poem. It was my pleasure to review your work. I look forward to reading more in the near future.
