Rainy Day.

Rain whispers through the trees

polishing each glistening leaf

casting a light veil

across all imperfections,

falling upon the palms of

thirsting grass, where

every bloom has raised its face

to catch each perfect drop.

Thoroughly fell into this poem with the imagery that so  marvelously and economically balances visuals and the experiencing of rainfall. Grass does indeed have thirsty palms. "glistening" is the wiprd that adds dimension, bloomfaces adds invited mere humans to participate anthropomorphically inside a genttle brush stroked personification. Minimalism is aluve in this naturalist viewing, a mergimg of senses and onjects interacting, foeminf a motion-painting. Bravo. Your best ever! and I am a huge fan iof this work.
