Winter rain

Have you ever taken the  time to watch rain  fall in winter? 
See the beautiful symmetry of it; listen to the gentle splash?
    Watch the lacy curtain of moisture against the background of winter 
darkened trees.
 Drops, like shiny gems, are clinging to graceful branches. 
Others, growing in size until they are too heavy to hold on any longer, run down my 
windshield; their path erratic and wiggly. 
   There is so much beauty in Nature, even on the grayest day. 
It is in the peaceful pitter-patter of the descending rain. 
In the gentle ripple that appears as it enters a puddle.
 And in the heavy, leaden and mighty clouds that travel our wonderful world.

    Hi Bridget :) this is just simply lovely, it has a crystalline purity to it, these are the words that come to my mind to best describe it. Such a gracefulness and your imagery is perfect, each line has a tenderness and an appreciation for nature and life... I love this. It's going in my favs. Thanks so much for your sweet congrats on "Little Yellow Socks" and have a wonderful weekend. Love, Amy
