Soft drops fall from the heavens,
Caressing my window sill.
How I long to have such freedom,
To come and go at will.

To be cherished so much,
Never knowing when
An appearance will come.

When finally it does,
Being loved for the beauty
Not won, but possessed.

A single drop contains
The power to cause
Such wanting…

Wanting of something-
We cannot control,
Cannot hold.

The eternal
Beauty
Of the Rain.

Beautiful...raindrops, like tears, do not last forever.  And even though associated with sorrow, can be so beautiful.

Rain has always filled me full of happiness.I have never felt sadness in the rain, only power,wonder and excitement!The freedom comes when you run out and play in the rain,knowing you are going to get soaked!-SEA

Looking at something as small and insignificant as rain is such a wonderful way to express yourself.  It really makes one think

Christopher, you don't know what you're missing!  

devina, this was lovely -- rain is one of my single most favorite types of weather, and it has as many moods as I do.

Ever think about the fact that rain, like love, is only real in the falling?  

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

Devina - this was absolutely beautiful.  The way you captured the essence and gave it such powerful emotional qualities was truly amazing.  Personally, I'm not too fond of rain...it's alright when I'm inside.  The sounds of the rain, however, I do find soothing.
