The Mystery Of Water - Poem by Smoky Hoss

The clear smooth rain
Falls gently upon the ground;
Nothing else moves
Not a sound.
Grass and leaves
With fascinating joy glisten;
The natural world renewed in hope
Quietly waits, and carefully listens.

The gray clouds break
As the sun in brilliance comes dancing through;
The watered world below reflects
Great beauty of above, from a sky so blue.
The earth once again cleansed
And refreshed;
Through the mystery of water
We all are sustained, and blessed.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Thoughts from watching a late afternoon rain shower, while on vacation in beautiful Florida.

    An then perhaps a rainbow. An ode to the beauty and need of those precious showers.
    And a joy to read. I admire your love of nature
