A New World

the morning breaks
the world awakens
the cold bites
the Heavens begin weeping

Her tears pour downward
in an unending downfall
they create duck ponds
too small for the ducks

the skies' rhythmic tear drops
their melodic, pattering lullaby tune
on the summer's dry foliage
the flowers faces droop increasingly lonely

before long all flowers have disappeared
rivlets of fresh rain meander lazily
their cold feet leaving nothing untouched
their wake leaves a thoroughly washed earth
everything sparkles, gleams and shines and reflects
the way unique to after a rainfall
the animals step blinking out of shelter
to view in awe, a new world

I loved reading it! The way you personalized Heaven was very original. Before I was feeling a little sad because of the crying/rain, but then after the rain the Earth becomes a new world, so it was great that you tied that notion in with the title. Splendid job~

thank you, thank you, thank you!! I did kinda want to give that affect, I have always had a soft spot for rainy days. And every time I would look out the window, words would start flowing through my head, so I finally decided to write a poem about it :-)
