Power of a Raindrop
i feel a light tickle as wet drops
fall from the sky onto my lashes;
i open my mouth to taste the droplets
as they fall, gentle upon my tongue;
i pause and breathe in the freshness
surrounding the cleansing rain
and remember that i, too,
have the power of a raindrop,
the power to change my surroundings,
to cleanse and refresh my life.
Phyllis Moorman (2015) from book Power of a Raindrop.
