Raindrops. . .



The word for the day is

raindrops.

Raindrops on roses,
raindrops hanging for dear life on the leaves and twigs
of my coral bark maple.

Raindrops dripping down your face like tears.
Raindrops pattering a soothing sound on your roof.

Raindrops filling the creek behind my house
so the ducks can body-surf from the bridge to the pond.


Raindrops.
Have any fallen lately into your life?

Are they helping things grow
or making you think you might drown?

If there's too much rain falling around you,
stop complaining. Complaining doesn't stop the rain.
It makes you focus on what you don't want.
Just let your friends
shelter you with their umbrellas of love.

I'll trade two buckets of my rain for one of your raindrops!

Complaining doesn't stop the rain. It makes you focus on what you don't want.

Wise words :)

We have sun today as what was left of Ida moved away. No storm, just rain. I love the picture and the philosophy of complaining...
