A poem about the path of rain as it continues its endless journey, being forgotten and then renewed again.


Tiny drops of life,
Falling from above,
Small and insignificant
until they make a whole.

Falling down upon the earth,
Landing onto leaves,
Giving precious life,
To what would otherwise never be.

Flowing into rivers,
and on to endless seas,
A never ending journey,
An ever changing path.

Flowing with one another,
and merging into one,
All the same,
Yet ever changing.

They leave the earth,
and are forgotten,
Only to fall again,
Continuing their endless journey.

A journey with many ends,
Yet a journey that always continues.
