    A drip drop
    Though anticipating a storm
    A power surge
    Instead of a blanket to keep me warm

    A tap on the shoulder
    wanting an eternal embrace
    A slight pivot
    expecting a complete about face

    I saw an eclipse
    But was waiting for the still of the night
    I watched the wick of a candle burn out
    Thinking the sun would intervene and provide light

    Hummed the first few bars of one of my favorite
    tunes, but couldn't sing it all the way through
    Tried to fashion my heart strings into love notes,
    but greetings & salutations was the best I could do

    We all want the sweet and magical
    occurrences of life to stay
    While the bitter, horrific happenings
    are kept at bay
    But life isn't always served up that way
    Guess for now I'll have to
    accept my portions, piecemeal

    nice droppings

    i sense a poet's yearning for divinity lost which can be gained again.
    you don't have to do a rain dance for it to rain again.

    Acceptance isn't always easy. I guess it's like that saying, change what can be changed, and accept what can't. Thank you Rich.
    There is usally more than one path to reach a goal, if only we can discover that different path. Thank you Sha'iyn.

    I tend to think that when the drops of rain, turns to showers, to rain, on to storms ...are merely stepping stones to "Growth" ...to bigger and better things.
    Like from "Sun" ...to the everlasting beautiful "Rainbow"
    look to the sky ...the RAINBOW is there.
    great piece poet ...^5
