water from the sky



I love to watch the rain

One may read of blessings

Or hear them talked about

And wonder at the truth of what is said

Who brags of blessing?  Everyone.

But to see the water falling out of the sky

The whole, round sky.  Everywhere.

So men may gather corn, wine and oil

And see the grass rise in the field for the cattle

That is happening now, before my eyes

It is no abstraction, I can see it and smell its freshness

If I stand out in it,  I will shiver in its cold

It is no lie, no exaggeration, no dream of men

This is the water of life, come again.

I watch the creeks rise and know

This water is a gift from heaven

None can do this but God
