The gracefulness and delightful wording of how this poem is put together makes me cry. I like how you start of with the one word "Raindrop," then explain what it makes up think of. I love the last line, "Freedon that lands anywhere it wants to." Keep writing poetry. I like you're style. laurengerhard replied...

The comparison between raindrops and tears is really strong. I love the line "freedom that lands anywhere it wants to" laurengerhard replied... Apr. 3, 2013 at 3:50 pm : Thank you!

And I like the way you used raindrops as a sort of transition between the two different ideas you were trying to convey. Keep writing! laurengerhard replied...
