rain... Waters and Fields

the night to reveal
what blessings hold ever real
waters and fields lush and green
here and in distances dark yet seen
nature's palette in abundance greet
where streams, rivers, sea and ocean meet
the welcomed rains and heard is nature's sigh
hallowed libation from heaven's sky
the night to reveal
what blessings hold ever real.

  1. Rosemarie - oh yes, the sky sighed loud and steady and relentlessly as it cascaded over the earth and trees and all of natures thirsting life - and so the earth drank - the cooling waters and soothing mist - healing the parched remnants of the long hot day - a metaphor for forgiveness.
    Loving you

  2. Dear Gail, So appreciate your descriptive and metaphor - itself poetry.

    Much love,
    Rose Marie
