Winter Rain

by Ananda Vrindavan devi


It’s a cold rain on this cold morning

Raining cats and dogs they say 

Why not raining birds and bees

Or better yet let it rain love and kindness

Drops of sweet water to change our thinking

To wash away fear and loneliness

Let it rain invitations to reach out

And share our lives with others

Let it pour down buckets of insights

That we can find meaning and shelter in our pain

Let the raindrops wash away our tears

And let the same raindrops cause us to cry

With honest reflection and emotional freedom

Honor the rain on this cold winter day

A gift of water from above

Freely given, with love.
