Kiss The Rain

Droplets of rain
fall on Earth,
making everything
to come to Life
before my eyes!

Trees sway from left
to right with joy!

The ground smells
of fertility once more!

The air smells of rejuvenation
around me like before!

Rivers gain strength
and eagerly flow downwards
to become waterfalls!

Opening my mouth wide,
I taste blessings in the form
of pure droplets of water!

Once more Mother Earth
kisses the rain!

    very beautiful way to do the contest. I like the brevity of this one and how well it flows.

    Swaying trees and opening mouths for a taste of the droplets really set the image. personally I would have "Once more mother earth is smothered with kisses of rain" but who am I? You can't absolutely please everybody, right? I still like the imagery.

    Thanks Karl!I really like your honest reaction. That's what makes us all poets! I like experimenting poetry even with abstract kind of art and metaphorical language. Thanks again! ;)
