~ Raindrops ~

A kaleidoscope of blurring raindrops
hit the window pane
and turn to running rivers
joining and splitting
again and again
until they reach the bottom
and rush off the ledge
in a cascading waterfall
hitting the puddles below
sending intricate ripples
rushing away
carrying leaves on the currents
like small boats
caught on never ending waves
rising and falling
spinning and twirling 
until they hit a distant shore
and tumble onto the banks
resting atop one another
higher and higher
dancing here and there 
under the crying sky.
