      You
a single drop
             of rain
    fall from the sky
down at my feet and
     you speak to me
             in ripples,
         of small waves

but whispers, stir
    the rainwater of you
        and puddles embrace you
with promises


but promises are
     colourless, transparent
can you not see ?
   how they will turn
        to clay

I love you more than yesterday and less than tomorrow

Oh this is like rain the the darkness.......Hardly seen.......but felt so deep there is nothing but the rain..  Well done

 It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Your poetry has grown from strength to strength to hon.

And I know where you are speaking from my friend.

DarkAngel~
Your writing is awesome.
I especially like this one.
It is softly rippling ...
it speaks quietly of 'the puddle's embrace'.

Rain is a topic I dearly love to attempt to write of, but puddles, oh you have captured the imagination in this one!!!

me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace." Elizabeth Barrett Browning
