when he stood in the rain

i thought the raindrops falling upon him

were lucky

that if to be a tiny droplet

i would want to land upon

his goodness

how i wish to be the water

which permeates the air

cleansing and igniting life

turning brown to lush green



i watched through the window

while he stood drenched in life

dripping down his very being

immersed in my love for him

waiting for the sun to greet the water bearing clouds

knowing he is forever standing at the end of the rainbow…


About echowood628

Let me start by saying I have been involved in creative endeavors my entire life. I began playing the piano at age two, composed my first song at age four, and ever since have spent almost every day spending hours allowing my fingers to dance across my keyboard. Composing music for the piano gave me a place to heal and find peace. An art major in college I focused on drawing and figure drawing and I also enjoy oil painting and watercolors. I have always enjoyed poetry and more recently started writing poems and enjoying the freedom and limitlessness of expressing my heart with paper and ink. I am divorced with two grown children. My daughter is a published author and my son is attending college majoring in zoology.

    What a beautiful poem Janice.

    which permeates the air
    cleansing and igniting life
    turning brown to lush green

    Your amazing description of water,
    that which helps us sustain life, that
    which makes up such a large portion
    of our planet…water has sensual and
    erotic qualities and as indicated by your
    beautiful artwork, it is also a source of
    inspiration…and that, my friend, is you,
    a source of inspiration.
