.
Down where the creamy white Magnolia blossoms are opened wide____
                    
                                 exposed to the rain, drizzle, cool damp air

Down where the spider's wide web woven betwix and between the Inkberry Holly and the veranda
 
                       The web is dotted

With dewdrops~ tiny diamonds waiting 'pon the sun so they can glisten

                            Down where 

The rain ran like a river flowing in the front yard
                          
                                              Down to the storm drain on to the creek

Corrigated storm drains
              
                which are filled with water to slowly drain away

                                                Evaporate
Like:

A drained heart ~ drained of all emotion, energy, and enthusiasm

                      A Heart
Who has poured out emotion, energy until, until the life force has drained away

The strong breeze has given the Vultures a way to soar.....

                                                High, Circling~~

Their flight of ease catching the currents__soar__

                                                                Look~~Search

Until they see a food source

                                    Hunger drives them~~~~

Hunger

                Drives one whose heart is drained ~drained needing to fill that empty space


                                with

                                                 What?
