Rain – Make up your mind!

Post date: Mar 08, 2017 1:9:21 AM

Rain- make up your mind! You have been coming & going all day!

I have to admit that too often I see you as an a darn inconvenience to my well laid out plans, a dampener on my mood, a downer on my great BBQ .

But today I see you as blessing. You fall to earth in droplets, laughing through trees & leaves, gurgling and splashing down on rocks, creeks and drains. By afternoon I see you in a whole new light. The sun peeks through the clouds and I behold a treasure chest – a jewelled landscape as you glisten and sparkle like diamonds on every branch & blade of glass all the way down to the dam.

You know you are a curious thing, Rain! What is it you are saying to me? if I could only listen a while…

I am water and I play in the form of rain, vapour and ice.

I provide snow to the polar caps and home to the polar bear, too!

I swirl freely with frogs & fish through rivers and gullies and bubble forth with delight from fountains.

I dance on mountain tops, forests and the odd tin roof.

I lie in ponds and puddles waiting for children to jump & splash in me.

So for once, throw caution aside - the wind will catch it, forget the barbie, feel my joy and dance to my rhythm in your heart.

If you can swim, it is because you once swam in me- in the great oceans. I make up 70 percent of the planet and your body too - You big drip!! I am your life-force.

I give abundantly and joyously to nourish planet earth till it becomes green with envy!!!
