Rain drops

We're falling, gathering speed, only moments before being incarcerated in a heavenly grasp, land is racing up to meet us. 

Impact, we fragment into a million molecules sparkling, glittering, dazzling in the right light.

In no time at all we've merged, from droplet  to puddle, to complete surface saturation. 
Still the rain falls, beating down the sound deafening.

Searching out crevices following the contours, exploiting weakness, we are strong now, and with every passing moment our strength grows.

Combining, merging, the sense that if this continues, nothing can stop us.
After all we are a force of nature.

    Fierce word flow & awakening truth in your lines. And, yes, it is choice that can make us a force of nature. Excellent!

    Hello Linda, AKA Poet DestroyerA, thanks for the welcome to PoetrySoup and not Destroying my poem. I visited your contest page "One day", I will do my best to come up with a poem for it , but usually I just follow my chain of thought. Not want you would call a poet to order. Nice to know a friend is out there if needed thank you - Alexis

    Welcome, Alexis. I comment your poem as you asked on the wall. It is a pleasure to see that you are already at a good level of poetry. The words you use are rich and clear. Although no rhyme is searched for, I appreciate the musicality of your prose poem. Finally, me too admire falling drops of rain which are a force of nature.

    Thank you, Mario. For the welcome and your constructive comment. The fact that my work does not rhyme, has delayed me joining poetrySoup, Tthinking that it may not be poetry, but something else, maybe descriptive writing.

    Thank you, for your comment, I realize that mankind does a lot of wrongs to our Mother earth, but I try to focus on the positive aspect of our nature. Although I have written some dark work that I haven't yet uploaded
