Refreshing Raindrops

Updated on January 22, 2017
Refreshing Rain
Refreshing Rain | Source


Rain, a downpour from the skies above that brings happiness and joy. Drenching earth with her moisture and feeding the rivers and streams, the rain enriches life.

Drops of rain slip sliding down leaves and flowers glisten in the sun and outshine the best of jewels.

I enjoy getting drenched in the rain, it refreshes my heart and soul. I have captured all my thoughts and feelings about rain in the poems below.

I hope you enjoy reading!


Raindrops falling

Swiftly running down

Mountains and slopes

Feeding rivers and streams

And plants that grow

Raindrops falling

Quenching thirst

Of Mother Earth

Refreshing life

In the universe

Dancing in the Rain

Dancing in the Rain

Refreshing raindrops fall

Enriching my spirit and soul

I walk into the falling rain

Not minding the chill or the cold

I fully get drenched in the rain

Reliving my childhood memories

When every drop of rain that fell

Would fill my heart with joy and glee

Dancing in the rain



Rain Drops

Glistening Glory

Raindrops gliding down leaves

Shimmering reflecting

Myriad rays of the sun

Creating a world of colors

Lighting up dew drops

That slide down slowly

Gently gliding

Into a beautiful world

Of glistening glory

      You've brought back memories of dancing in the rain and splashing in the puddles as a child. Now I do it with my grandchildren!

      Beautiful poems.

      I can't say that I enjoy the rain. ( It's rained almost every day for a month. ) But I love your poetry...

      Oh, how lovely! I enjoyed reading your poems here.

      We have had rain for several weeks, but it has been that dreary and overcast skies type of weather, but finally the sun is shining and it is so beautiful this weekend.

      I love the rain showers when it is not accompanied by storms.

      Up and beautiful, pinning and tweeting

      Vellur.....Simply AWESOME. I love our Spring because of the rain....when it's a mild day and everything is renewing and nature begins to pop up everywhere. It does REFRESH us completely.

      I can enjoy just sitting by a window watching the rain fall and the raindrops dance on the windows....but most of all....the smell in the air when we poke our heads out to breathe deeply.....

      Thank you for this lovely piece....UP+++

      Vellur,

      Your rain drops fell on my face and made me smile. Such a refreshing poem on a cold Florida day---it chased my blues away.

      Have a great new week.

      I will share with Twitter and put this lovely poem on my re-pin board.

      Faith Reaper I do agree constant rain or storm can be down and depressing. Occasional showers are great. I love to get wet in the rain! Thank you for the many votes and share, much appreciated.

      fpherj48 thank you and I know the fresh smell after the rain is simply awesome. Thank you for your many votes, much appreciated.

      So lovely, the rain really does refresh and regenerate. We rely on it so much. Summer here now - it can become intensely hot and waiting for rain is really difficult. Right now it is cool and I can hear a distant rumble of thunder, hopefully some rain will accompany it soon. Thank you Vellur.

      Two great poems about rain Vellur. We don't get enough rain here for most of the year. December and January (Summer) we have had as much as the entire rest of the year so when it does rain I love it. Well written, voted up.

      I love rains and I loved your poem. Beautiful visualization and an excellent combination of words.

      I love the season, even if it brings some discomforts. But as kids, we really enjoyed playing, jumping in the rain, not worried about any thing else. A poet's imagination is most fertile during rains, I believe.

      Thanks for sharing this lovely poem and beautiful pictures! Voted up!

      Wonderful poems you have given to us. I really enjoyed reading them. Miss the rain from the Great Lakes it was so different than the rain we get down here in this humid climate.

      What lovely imagery! For some reason, rain has a great ability to inspire poetry. It's one of my favorite poem topics as well. Indeed, here in California we do want to dance when it rains.
