Cleansing Rain.


I stand in the rain,

It’s drops falling onto my skin,

Sliding down my body.

As each drop reaches the ground

A worry is washed away,

Washed onto the ground

Creating rivulets of water,

Forming into streams

That slide into rivers,

That get cleansed in the sea.

The purity of its vapour

Rises into the sky.

The clouds gather,

The rain falls,

Cleansing the worries

Once more from our souls.

    Super stuff and I love the picture - might even copy the idea in acrylic ink - if it works I'll post it later.

    • Goldfinch60

      Thanks Michael. It would be good to see your picture.

      Good write G/F. We may moan - too hot, too cold, too wet, etc. Yet clouds can create an atmospheric feeling - dark clouds, white clouds, etc. You singin' in the rain there? And can ya hear me singin' in it? Meowwoo! lol.

      • Goldfinch60

        Singin' in the Rain is wonderful, if it is heavy enough people can't hear you.

        • orchidee

          Great, wonderful! Pray it thunders too, then you will hear me even less! heehee.

        • FredPeyer

          Goldfinch, such a nice metaphor that rain washes away our worries. I think it also washes away our sins. Beautiful writing!

          • Goldfinch60

            So do I Fred. Thank you.

          • Accidental Poet

          • Night Owl

            Lovely Goldfinch! I could almost smell the rainfall-- Beautiful wording...

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Night Owl, most kind.

            • malubotelho

              Beautiful picture and poem. I will try a cleansing like this next rainfall.

              • Goldfinch60

                It can be wonderful. Skin is waterproof. Thank you for your kind remarks malubotelho.

              • WriteBeLight

                I would agree! Very cleansing Goldfinch!

              • burning-embers

                I wish it would hurry up and cleanse my soul. We've had oodles of it lately and i've still got the blues in my bones. Great write Goldfinch, i like the way you include that repetative cycle.

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you b-e much appreciated.

                Thanks ANDY ~ It is the abundance of water ~ billions & billions of gallons ~ that makes Planet Earth a Living Planet ~ the only one discovered so far ! The water Cycle powered by the Sun purifies the water and even though H~O~H is a small molecule it is all retained by the Earths Gravity ! W can waste pure (potable) water ~ but in the end it's all recycled. God touched the clouds ~ made the rain ~ from the rain formed the sea ~ from sea formed the clouds to give us life abundantly ! Thanks for caring and sharing ~ BRIAN
