Raindrops fall gently
nourishing thirsty earth
life giving water

Swollen rivers flow
swiftly through the neighborhood
alarming the people

This precious liquid,
necessary renewal,
no longer admired

Destruction disguised
a benign interloper
warily watched

Nature’s fury shows
humans cannot outwit drops
steadily falling

Life giving water
becomes the reapers hand
exacting its due

Circle of life come
full as we watch lustrous pearls
of rain gently fall

      Just let me know when you’ve had enough of my critiques!! Remember, I am only making suggestions; you are the writer! Apparently I like the editing role! I need to write something and post it on your blog soon so you can give me a critique for a change 🙂
