I thought to myself

What is life?

For me it is joy and tears and strife

It’s being a woman, a friend, and a wife

It’s working and dreaming

And dancing and playing

Or wanting to chase the wind

But always staying

It’s finding the sweetness

Of unexpected love

And sprinkles of blessings

From above

It’s needing and wanting

Desire that’s haunting

It’s breathing through pain

And walking in the rain

Life is horrid and dear,

Full of excitement and fear

Life isn’t caught in these words we say

Life is just living today

rain wins… Toni L.A. Cross

splat!
the barrage begins
drip!
Why is it rain always wins?
drop!
hands in pockets and tilted down chins
Splatter!
Stinging drops pricking like pins.

a single drop

iridescent

suspended in space

teeming

with life within

drip

a single drop

crystal

careening downward still

splat

soaking filling giving

silent
