Steady Rain


steady rain

i hear it on the roof

on the skylights

gently drumming

calming

soothing

washing

bringing renewal

the dust and dirt gone

returning to the ground

under my feet

where it belongs

Spirit's Rain

let It pour

over my heart

washing clean

sometimes softly

sometimes harder

always cleansing

removing the dust and dirt

it's on the ground

where it belongs

under my feet

that is so beautiful, it reminds me of the song "grace like rain". Gods love rains down on us and washes away all the dust and dirt, under our feet...awesome.
Now stop making me cry with all your depth and introspection!
