After the Rain


I found this leaf on my driveway the morning after an overnight shower. I was struck by its simplistic beauty. That thought led on to others, namely that a leaf is already beautiful, but that droplets of rain enhance its beauty. Nature doesn’t wait for the storm to pass before carrying on. Neither should we.

The rain begins with a single drop

Crystal clear from a leaden sky

Journey’s begin with a single step

We pause, hesitate, we know not why

Promises which we make ourselves

“I’ll live my dreams tomorrow”

But yet tomorrow never comes

And time we can neither buy nor borrow

So start today and live your dreams

Dance on through laughter and the pain

From a leaden sky the sun always comes

Don’t wait till after the rain.
