Imagine yourself as a raindrop
 Sharing space in a cloud 
Will I be part of a morning shower 
Or the member of an angry crowd 
Will I fall to earth on a gentle breeze 
Or ride the currents of a storm 
Will I be cool or refreshing
 or steamy muggy and warm 
Will I bounce upon some rooftop
 Or touch the leaf of a tree 
Rising along a storm surged tide 
Seeking some way to be free
 Will I kiss the petals of a daisy
 And glisten in the sun
 Or fall into a lazy pond 
That has no where to run
 Will I gently touch the soft brown earth 
Searching to find my roots
 Attach myself to a passerby
 Who is wearing rubber boots 
Will I find myself in a glass
 as part of a lemonade
Or settled in a sheltered ditch 
As a puddle in the shade 
A raindrop's life is ongoing
 Like the angels tears Caressing the earth
 Rising once again into the sky
 Clouds symbolize rebirth
 Just imagine it for a moment 
And think of the rainbow in flight 
A raindrop divided into colors
Bathed in heavenly light

    You took a tiny raindrop and took me on a magical trip with it. Beautifully done Bill

    One would not be thinking of a raindrop as being picturesque, but I see here where you have created that imagery with it as well as being romantic, violent, soothing and so on. One great story on a single raindrop. Great piece, Bill. Thanks for your visit and comment. One love Joy (Jew)

    This is wonderful bill and the thought of being a raindrop is very refreshing.. but, the thought of falling and caressing the world has more beauty than we know... a well enjoyed poem,, thanks ,, have a nice one,..Linda
