A Soft Rain Caresses Gently


A soft rain caresses gently, running into streams as the joy

of the Earth accepts the sky’s offering,

and sparrows celebrate

over the widening river

so lovingly held

in the hands of the mountain.

And one day,

this same river will empty itself

as a sacrifice

into the expanse of the sea

and the endless horizon.

  1. So vivid and descriptive, I specially liked the part where you said river emptying itself as a sacrifice to merge in sea. It made me realize how unconditional and wonderful mother-nature is!!
