Peer over

On Rain - what really is rain?

water molecules pulled by gravity

umbrella search initiation

life-blood to the corn

crashing upon my head, a waterfall I stand beneath

reunion of sea and sky

crying of the spirits

clouds bent down low

rhythm and rhyme on the window

Some people view the rain as a nuisance. Others praise it as a blessing. To some, the rain is a symbol of sorrow and mourning. Still others love the peaceful music it brings. Will we ever know all that the rain is?

Recognizing the facets and aspects of life arms writers and poets to reconstruct reality into something artistic. My lecture notes last semester say that scientific writing is aimed at making sense of life while artistic works seek to rearrange pieces of it in creative ways. So, could you say that art is then opportunity?
