Rain on the window – ( poem)

15 Jan

Scot Newton Stream 1

Fast Flowing Stream

Watching the rain

Rain on the window

Rain on the window, a soft gentle sound
Finding a space on the glass
And out in the garden, rain reaches the ground
Touching the tips of the grass

The drop on the window goes seeking a friend
Finding others out on the trail
Then forming a group, they slowly descend
Leaving behind them a watery tail

The grass moves slightly as the rain softly lands
And slides to the ground below
Soaking into the earth, it touches the strands
Of roots, so that grasses may grow

Rain on the path come together to form
A puddle like a miniature lake
Large drops of rain now arrive with a storm
Fast flowing streams they make

The clouds past over and the rain moves away
The sun reclaiming the skies
A land now refreshed, the dirt washed away
And the rain on the window dries
