Raindrops


Splatter, then glide down the window,
become a visual meditation.
Drops on the rusty tin roof provide
rhythmic background music
as the candle burns higher and reflects
writer and her mythic muse.

I like the meditation quality of this poem and can hear and see the rain coming down. And the candle is the perfect touch.

Raindrops on glass are beautiful. Even I like that 'visual meditation' bit. Kinda reminded me of how watching raindrops falling on glass is engrossing. Raindrops falling on metal is very pleasing to the ear too.
The candle and the raindrops seem to be in sync with each other.
Well written poem.

I like this portrait, mystic and delicately etched.

Judy, I love "visual meditation" - that so well describes the effect of watching water - that staring off into space that later turns into a poem.

Raindrops never cease to inspire - both in sight and sound.

This is one of the tightest, meaning packed pieces I've seen from you, Judy, and I LOVE it!Every single letter counts here.

It's true. I cannot write in a bustled busy environment, but if you place me alone in silence with the sound of the raindrops on my window or nothing at all, my creativity flows onto the page. A brilliant poem I enjoyed reading that I truly connected with.

Very nice, Judy.

I love watching and listening to raindrops, Judy, and I love your poem. Also, not quite as meditative but still fun is watching the grandkids picking raindrops to see which one wins the race down the window.

Jingle said...
