To you I am only rain

to you i am only rain
a bucketfull of water
escaping from the clouds
do you really think so little of me

maybe i am a falling fountain
but you cannot climb a ladder
a hill of stairs
to a more beautiful level of thought

i don't understand
why i am so simply termed to you
or why you cannot define me
beyond my looks

maybe you are reluctant
to look within my essence
defining me by a limited definition
and a name called rain

there is so much more to me
i live, breathe and dance through the sky
in different temperaments
i am alive , i have a past and a future

droplets of rain are all you see
a face with a laugh
a sad outer shell

but you know nothing of me
so define me how you wish

      Good write Rose.
      I would bring the rain indoors on chilly nights, to save it getting cold, but rain is rather wet! lol. Me house is full of lamp-posts now. lol.

      I like this "in your face" approach from you. Much more spirited side of your writing.

      I found myself conversing with rain
      Maybe those emotions keep hidden
      But through poetry of yours they resurface
      Thanks a lot dear Rose

      Very good words yellowrose, without rain we would not exist.
