Bless the Rain

Blessed rain falling down

Drenching cleansing hydrating

Sustaining the earth

      xstatic, over here in the UK we have been praying for rain, now it will not stop, so we're now praying for sunshine. Can't please all the people... thanks again for stopping by.

      Very true poetry! The rain here in Oregon is seldom warm enough to play in without layers of clothing, but we still love it, especially followed by sunshine. Beautiful pictures!

      Rain is so beautiful isn't it... one can relate to it in so many beautiful ways! The downpour of water over the thirsty earth!

      The show of love between the heaven and the earth

      The happiness of kids dancing in the rain

      The passion of lovers kissing and singing in the drizzles

      With your 17 syllables and beautiful pictures.. you have captured the essence of rain beautifully :)
