Gramma’s Eyes - Jan. 13, 2023

rain on the pond

sure looks like a happy reunion

each drop that hits the water

rebounds with a sparkling leap

so many excited to be back

and welcomed after a long journey

to where no one knows

and why – none seem to care

so much like Gramma’s eyes

when she’d open her front door

they’d first turn moist

and their reservoirs would fill

before joy would start jumping

out of

the invisible downpour
