The Canvas of Us

what's better than rain?
the drops that
fall on
wood
rock
life.

rain doesn't choose
where it lands;
travels

it goes where
the wind
blows
r i d i n g .

so what if rain
became paint?
and made a picture
on the canvas
of us

the paint wouldn't
c a r e
where it
landed.
if soft
or hard

its picture would be
beautiful
strange
n e w .

it would paint
without care
restriction
fear
...
and its creation
would
l i v e
for its creation
would be
us

us in a world
of thinkable
unthinkable
color
that had no
reason
to exist

except it did.
and it painted on the canvas
of us.

    This is so beautiful- it made me wish it rained more often where I live. Is it a metaphor for love? It's random, uncaring, and makes the world more colorful- I don't know if it was your intention, but that's how I interpreted it! This is super cool!
