Rain Finally Came

As the sky opened up

to let the rain fall,

nature shouted for joy

as the earth was so

happy it cried out

to the clouds

and thanked them

for the cool drops

that fell from the sky,

for today was a time

to be joyful,

for it may be

a while before the

rain falls again.

    James, on the doppelganger thing, couldn't you get my meaning from context? hahaha. It's one of the contests here at Soup to write on doppelgangers (LOOK a LIKES). HAve you ever seen Jay Leno show where he goes out to a mall or something and looks at people who resemble famous people, but usually in a bad way, and he calls it something like "Clones gone wrong" It's pretty funny!! The doppelganger that was most striking was the one that looked exactly like my 5 year old daughter!

    Very true and accurately penned out. Also thank you for your comment and marking on my poem for a friend. But it was just that. I wrote it for a friend of my fiance`s,although i have lost a close sister and can relate to your loss, which i`m so sorry. Bless up ... Paul

    I agree. We need the rain as much as the sun. Nothing grows without both and too much or not enough of either kills. Great job here. God Bless, JB

    Lovely write, James. Yes, it really does seem like all the flowers, plants and trees should be cheering when it finally rains, doesn't it?

    Yes, we should all be grateful for the rain--we need it as much as we need the sun. Nicely expressed poem.

    Yes indeed. We need the rain as well as the sun. Too much of either will kill. God Bles, JB
