Writing When Rain Drops

The pen in me that only drama knows,
Is most at art when water is released
From clouds are waterfalls torward earth that grows,
Rinsing my roof with raindrops west to east

Something of heavens show of falling streams,
Whose waves tap salt upon my window glass,
Gives me desire to write poetic dreams,
Of sacred tears descending into grass

What mystic bliss for showers to descend...
A sky of sea dripping unto earths wall
For I write best when raindrops dance with wind,
As blue lagoons turn grey and rivers fall

    "When raindrops dance with the wind" - beautiful description to absorb. I too love the rain and the sadness it brings. PS Your visits always leave a pink flush on my cheeks-thanks :)

    I have to say, the best minds in the world are those of a poet, they take the ordinary and weave such dreams with words that defy description. Love it Johnny, you give your all in each one you write. Luv, Elizabeth
