Rain is disliked by many, for it is wet and yet
it feeds the Earth and does it good
for what its worth.
So would the trees live without it? No!
Would we survive without it? No!
So let's take a closer look.
How intricate the rain drop is! Each little droplet
is a genuine piece of art.
A pear shaped bringer of life that is teeming
with swirls of biological microbes.
A tiny sphere wrapped up in a bubble of H2O
Reflecting light that falls upon it as does an
emerald cut diamond that shimmers in sunlight.
Individually they are singular and do no harm but
together as one they become a storm and
lash out in venomous torment.
The Earth sometimes cries out for tears of rain
to quench the arid and parched land, to nourish
the wilted, the starved, the forgotten and the damned.
The deluge can bring floods which carries such
devastation and destruction to wipe away all
in its path.
But 40 days brings a calming of the skies, then the white
dove she flies like a magicians hand that
waves across the land it brings a spectrum
of color in the shape of a bow.
So next time it rains, close your eyes and
face up to the sky
Let each droplet trickle by and by
like false tears of joy or of sorrow
The gentle tapping on the flesh may also
relieve your tension and stress. For these
are not just pulses of strife, these show
the beginnings, and the rhythm of life.
