Rain is falling all around
The dew drops from my mindv
Plop plop plops
goes the drops
The plot of my story.
There is a dry spot to sit
I feel rainy today
who knows when the rain will fall on me?
There is a fear of getting wet, cold
and being unable to get dry and warm again.
I can not control the rain.
I am a leaf on a tree
an ever-changing leaf.
Perfect in imperfection,
yet unfinished in every way
strange and beautiful
unique unto a leaf on a tree
and the elements that shape it.
I don’t know just when I lost control,
but do know I was afraid.
A fearful leaf on a tree,
ss-shivering in the wind.
Awake full of color, full of sound
floating falling downdowndown.

Great poem. Coming from the Pacific Northwest we can totally feel the vibe here. The secret to being AWESOME in Seattle is lots of Vitamin D and a good umbrella.
