raindrops as they are falling,
tell a story, listen closely,
they thud against cement tears of angels.

watch the darkened clouds turn white again,
the earth a mere diary of tears,
dissipating as they cry.

a field of sugary flowers,
melting from the pain,
flooding the ocean with colors.

melding a rainbow of sweet.
rushing through drains,
pouring from faucets.

here in my home,
it's safe to run,
the tears of the clouds will be masked

by tears of our own,
by the roof above us.

raindrops tell a story as they fall.
