The roof seems to have come alive Raindrops now treading softly on tip toes The skies clouded with cottons full of water They drip down as though they are squeezed Black turns white and so they pave way for others From little pitter-patter to heavy thuds and splashes They have grown, graciously engulfing everything I turn over, not wanting to leave my warm covers I pull up the quilts and try to drift away But I can’t resist it any longer, the rain tempts me I’ve always been addicted to rainy days, Today is no exception…so I jump off my bed Still encased in my quilt, I settle on the sill Arms around my knees, I stare at the heavens Oh! So wonderful, so magical, almost fairy tale like The line seems broken yet steady, bulky yet graceful Departed from home, they splash on foreign land Soon, they seep into the depths exploring the layers Some fall on silky leaves which make them their own Some others join their fathers, flowing to the unknown It all happens with a blink of the eye… It continues to rain as I shed my warmth Looking around I realise I am alone, Except of course for the little raindrops Who keep me company on lonely days My only solace on teary mornings My inspiration when I’m about to let go My mentors when I need a hand to reach out to The raindrops are falling and I know today is good My morning cleansed pure with the flowing elixir The rest of the sun, still awaiting my arrival I’m full of spirit…I’m alive with fire fed by water The raindrops are falling and I know today is good After all it is raining…raindrops are falling What could go wrong?

    As far as I am concerned this is the best of the best. Great writing. Being the last no. 1 only means you were the last to enter. I've seen comments from others that seem to indicate theere is a ranking in the no. 1's but there isn't. But to me this one is the best. Congratulations,.Love, Joyce

    Congratulations on your win in my "Raindrops Falling" contest Neethu. I had a very hard time judging this contest as most of the poems were so well written. Thank you for supporting my contest. Love, Carol
