Like tears

Rain hits my umbrella

Bouncing bursting

Droplets scattering

Spreading my pain

Shimmering images

Relections of you


Love like rain

Showers me

With tears.

Thank you all so much for the likes and your comments, Keith and Wood.

My daughter and her art continue to inspire me; Art Is The Spark.

One day, I would like to marry my poems written to her art from three Exhibitions, published in an anthology - just need to find the funds.
