Lose the Umbrella Feel the Rain

 rain  quenches thirstiness
 fill  thy  cup 

 drink 
~
 weeping  willow  moist  tears
 cry   no   more 

 peace 
~
 beyond  the  waterfall 
dreams  take   root 

 growth
~
around  the  river  bend
 current   swift 

calm
~
dancing  free  in the  rain 
spirits  soar 

 joy

  1. Can turn things around and make what you want found. Like the willow reference too and the waterfall at your zoo. Bring a little joy, maybe with a foam toy? lol

  4. I enjoyed these Truedessa. Many were borne out of rain, which we have had a lot of too here too. I cannot choose a favorite, as they each resonate.

  8. You did some nice things thematically with the rain, while creating within the Tilus form admirably. 3 & 5 hooked me hardest; never so no to joy, or an offer to have rain as a dance partner.

    1. haha - Fun to dance in the rain but, not when you have to go back
      to work. You are lucky you had dry clothes. I have had to sit at work wet a time or two.

  15. I really like the image of calmness around the river bend.. to me it can have a higher spiritual interpretation .. not being afraid of what the future brings.

  22. I actually taught my nephew (well, the closest to it I have) to dance in the rain during a thunderstorm last year... He thought I was pretty crazy! *grin* Love, love, love the last Tilus!
