Travel Theme : Tiny

Like tiny diamonds the raindrops sparkle and twinkle on the stamens of the Grevillea. The closer you look the more they sparkle.

From 2000 to 2010 Queensland was in the grip of a severe drought. Every drop of water was precious. Then the floods of 2010 and 2011 devastated the land, but renewed growth followed in the aftermath. Now for the past 4 years nature has been kind, the rain has been gentle and nourishing, the sun has been warm and renewing and I cherish every day, but wonder when will this cycle of plenty change…

Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth;

without rain, there would be no life.

John Updike

  5. I love seeing the raindrop prisms reflecting like rainbows.


    Fat raindrops glisten
    on bleak winter branches,
    wistfully clinging
    in pregnant suspense.
    But earth’s silent call
    comes bursting their bubbles
    of immortality.
    The world weeps at endings,
    reluctant to admit
    that nothing lasts forever,
    not even death.
    For each dying teardrop
    becomes a rainbow celebration
    of the sun’s rebirth.

    • Thank you so much for that beautiful poem. I love the sentiment in it, the thought of the raindrop as a dying teardrop becoming a celebration of the sun’s rebirth. May I add it to my post (with a link to you Eileen) ? I would love to share it…
