The Raindrop

One beautiful day I remember seeing the rain

I reached outside my window and grabbed a drop

It was wet and it quickly danced across my hand

It didn’t leave it just sat in my palm and spoke to me

I’m a tiny little drop that fell from the sky

Would you be so kind to keep me close by?

When it spoke I didn’t know that it was real

I had to muster my thoughts and keep my mind clear

I quickly looked at the tiny drop in the palm of my hand

I replied by saying yes I’ll keep you wet and safe

It smiled and quickly danced in my palm

And as I felt it’s little tickle through my hand

I realized it had a plan to keep me close by it’s side

But how would that really ride?

Do raindrops live outside the rain?

My mind was wandering in pain

So many different thoughts about how to keep the raindrop close

It was happy you see, that it had time to spend with me

This little raindrop had it’s best

It’s like a little mystery test

How to care for this little drop without letting it go

If you ever hear the rain talk what would you do?

What a lovely thought, imaginative. I like the drop of rain with its own individuality and personality.

You are always so creative Nicole. If the rain should talk to me I would listen and try to understand.
I love the photo of your little Princess.
