Rain comes softly from the heavens

gently washing away yesterday’s dust

cleaning the tender green leaf

providing a much needed drink.


Little droplets of God’s love

purifying as it races down my cheek

cooling the burning shame within,

cleansing my soul with each silvery water droplet.


The promise of continuing life

and renewal of faith above.
