This is a beautiful song. I've never seen one that good on FP. It's definitely in my faves - lovely!

I like that perspective on rain as a renewal source. And that's so cool you wrote a song on a review! I was wondering, do you have tunes for your songs or do you just write lyrics?

*grin* Rain in the desert is an incredible thing to be able to witness. My family lives in Jordan, and if you drive west for an hour, things just start looking... dead. However, when I went to visit them last Easter, it started to rain when I was up on the roof, hanging laundry. It's really something else (I wasn't even pissed about having to take down all the clothes and run inside, soaked!).

This poem (or song, rather) is stunning. The whole feeling, of washing away a bitter past, starting anew, being reborn, is something that comes with the rain, and that's always why, whenever I go to the Middle East, I feel like I'm walking in something ancient and weary... or maybe I'm just feeling like that myself!

Beautiful! And the closing line spoke to me the strongest of all. You've captured something only those of us who've lived in the desert can understand.

Very inspiring poem! I especially liked the part where you said 'the wealth of life overflowing in this dazzling scatter'. True, I agree. You're surely a very optimistic person. :) Good for you! God Bless!

P.S. Thank you a lot for your encouraging reviews on my music poems! I really appreciate your feedback! :)

Oh...This is lovely. You've got the ryhthm in one constant fluency. That's a great job. I had to agree somehow, sometimes... I kinda miss Rain.

Isn't rain a wonderful thing? I love the rain, and I love the way you emplifyied its beauty in this piece.

(And I love knowing that there is someone out there who wouldn't look at me oddly when I see rain out the window and say, "What a beautiful day." Hehe.)

Wow, that's really good! I wrote a poem on the same topic, called "The Sky's Tears" but mine was slightly more depressing. You do a really good job of making the reader feel like they are actually standing in the rain and are learning to like getting wet. Your poem seems to flow naturally and the rhymes seem accidental, too. It's really great!
dragonscurse chapter 1 . 12/2/2002
That's a fabby poem _~

I always laugh at people trying to get out of the rain - they're so silly. *dances in the rain*

Thank you for reading (and reviewing) my peoms, I read all the ones of yours you told me to and I'm uber-impressed. And thank you for the online hug _

*blink* Your writing is very good... it just *feels* right and stuff. And I swear I'm going to have the lines

"In the mirror

Is an endless illusion

A crazy confusion"

Stuck in my head all day now :D

Beautiful! keep writing!
Verde Denali chapter 1 . 11/15/2002
Awesome song. Great use of extended metaphor (or am I over-analyzing?)

Also, it's great to see something other than an "old-fashioned love song"
Deana Bell chapter 1 . 11/11/2002
