Power of a Raindrop Poetry Sample

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.
