Tiny Rainbows

By R. Nuñez

Every raindrop makes a spatter
Unlike the ones the others make,
And tells a story all its own
About a river and a lake;

About an ocean and a cloud,
Of wondrous journeys that begin
With muddy puddles in the sun,
Of tiny rainbows found within.

And this in just a little drop;
Who knows what else it may contain?
And I, with so much more besides,
Am very like a drop of rain.

  1. I enjoyed reading this and interpreted the message and meaning as a metaphor for our place in the world. After the third reading I changed the last verse to the collective we.

    And this in just a little drop;
    Who knows what else it may contain?
    And we, with so much more besides,
    Are like those little drops of rain.

    Forgive me, I know I should not alter the original.
    Great piece of writing.

  2. As an author/writer, I would be flattered by the collaboration of the reader. After all, aren’t we all putting our work out to be kindly critiqued? To be shown the power of one word exchanged in a piece is a gift.
