THENCE CAME THE RAIN
Are there any new waters or songs to croon
From the days of Noah to nearest blue moon
For waters have coursed throughout the land
Sometimes pausing to rest in surfing our sand

Unseeming clouds drink heartily to their fill
To out-pour upon trees and roofs in timely will
We love this deliverence whence gentle rain
We groan and gasp in torrents for such its bane

Where is your beginning where is your end
Circle of life rhythm of infinite blend

NOTE
I am dotted silver threads dropped from heaven
By the gods. Nature then takes me, to adorn
Her fields and valleys.
I am beautiful pearls, plucked from the
Crown of Ishtar by the daughter of Dawn
To embellish the gardens...
1. Inspiration from Khalil Gibran - Song of The Rain Vii

  1. Beautiful, Gillena. I love that you chose Khalil Gibran as your inspiration. My favourite lines are:
    'Unseeming clouds drink heartily to their fill
    To out-pour upon trees and roofs in timely will
    We love this deliverence whence gentle rain
    We groan and gasp in torrents for such its bane'.
    I can almost feel the rain.
