Creative Writing and unfinished business…

from last nights refreshing rain –
sometimes love dies
Not able to attribute image – but thank you.

I love the contrast between the ‘refreshing rain’ and the death of love: this could be a realisation or a cleansing or perhaps even a metaphor for an opening door. This reads really well, Rachael – a great poem!
Thanks, Chris. I’ve been sitting in a blind alley for a while with the haiku – kind of writing in a vacuum. Good to get out of it with this one 🙂
That’s both beautiful and sad.
Thanks, Dan. Pleased you liked it 🙂
Thank you xxx
O yes, sometimes it does.
I really like the feel of this one
And I miss so much a refreshing rain. I am very thirsty
Thank you. I hope your thirst will be quenched soon…
Well, if I would be counting on nature to do its part I would die thirsty. I hope to get out of here in about a month to inhale some after-rain air (must be a word for it in some lanaguge).
I love the sadness and the contrast with the refreshing rain.
Thanks, Andrea. It means a lot that you like this… and it’s still raining:-)
Here too 🙂
Hi, Rachael! I am nominating you for the 3-day Quote and a Bonus Poem Challenge. You can find the details here at my blog flutterings: https://toniumbarger.wordpress.com/
I look forward to seeing your entries!
Hi. I am honoured you thought of me, but I’m afraid I do not accept awards or challenges. Good luck with your venture.
Oh, I’m sorry to hear that, but I understand. I enjoy reading your blog! Keep up the great work!
Beautiful image, sometimes there is beauty in sadness.
A wise observation, my friend. x
Absolutely beautiful! Love it!
Rachael, your blog is such a sensitive, beautiful and peaceful place to visit.
Thanks, Hanne. I feel the same about your photos. They inspire me to get out there with my macro lens after the rain!
To be inspired and to inspire is a wonderful thing. Funnily, I do see more and more raindrop photos showing up on wordpress, maybe only because I have my eyes tuned into it… a whole summer of photographing raindrops and I’m still fascinated by them… 🙂
