Poisonous Rain

by Jules, age 12
Poisonous Rain Jules is a passionate person who has been writing stories since the age of six. In first grade, her reading and writing talent were recognized, and she was allowed to move forward with reading and writing stories in a group separate from those focusing on basics. Since then, she has developed a love for expressing her feelings through writing. Recently, she found a story she suspects is her best work yet and she vows to finish it. Jules incorporates anti-racism, anti-animal-cruelty, anti-homophobia and anti-sexism into her work.

“Rain is falling / Mom is calling. / It’s time to go inside / Weather lied.”

        

Rain is falling

Mom is calling.

It’s time to go inside

Weather lied.

Rain is falling

Mom is calling.

She is fleeing

I am seeing.

Why?

I say.

Is the rain poisonous?

No.

Then why?

I ask.

Are you going to die

Because water is falling from the sky?

Rain is falling

Mom is calling.

Storm is coming

I’m still humming.

Water’s spraying

I’m still playing.

Rain is falling

Mom is calling.

Thunder’s frightening

Here comes lightening.

All is calm

Don’t worry, Mom.

It’s time to go inside

Weather lied.

Rain is falling.

Mom is calling.

She is fleeing

I am seeing.

Why?

I say.

Is the rain poisonous?

No.

Then why?

I ask.

Are you going to die

Because water is falling from the sky?
