Rain Wind Trees (Three) - Poem by Shannon Thompson

rain that falls
makes no sound
unless it hits something

people that love
make no impression
unless they are loved back

wind is
but so are
they look to
like playing

trees are
only as tall as
the sky
if you can't
climb the tallest
love is
only as deep as
the ocean
if you can
breathe underwater
