And It Rains.

And it rains.

The water from the sky

Dropping down

Onto the land.

Each drop meets others

And form pools.

These pools congregate

And form ponds.

The ponds merge into streams,

They start to move,

Move down hillsides,

And flow into rivers.

The rivers flow to the sea

And the vastness of the sea

Causes evaporation.

The mist rises to the sky

Where clouds are formed,

Each cloud gets bigger.

Water droplets are made,

And it rains

    And rains, and rains, and rains, and rains. It's been raining the whole day for me.... hasn't stopped. Hadn't seen the sun today! Put there is poetry.

        Thank you Andy for your refreshing outlook to rain. - - a journey worth taking is that of one raindrop

        • Goldfinch60

          Has the rain always been wet over the millions of years we've know it - us two?! lol.

          • Goldfinch60

            Yes it has been wet, remember the Ark that we had to pull! LOL


            • orchidee

              How did they clean out all the animals in the Ark, while it was afloat? Pongy?!

              I asked the rain to go away….
              It did, makes out I’m a liar;
              But won’t stay there by end of day
              And does an Arnold Schwarzenegger.

              It is one of the cycles which sustained life on earth.... Good 'un, Andy

              (But for how much longer?)

              • Goldfinch60

                Yes Dave, without rain we would struggle to survive.


                • Doggerel Dave

                  Ditto if we have too much rain, Andy.

                  I just love your tribute to rain! It always holds a fascination for me. I love to pop open my umbrella and be part of it. The whole cycle, circling back to the beginning, is beautifully described in this lovely verse. Thank you!

                    Your comment is much appreciated Bella, thank you.
