Rain Dance by F.A. Moore

Rain Dance
Not cirrus clouds,
serious clouds:

I’m gusting along the stratus,
where the fast birds fly past.

It’s misting…
The sky is falling!

And I’m dancing,
calling for rain.

—F.A. Moore Aug 27, 2009

Inspired by the comforting effect the sound of rain has on my psyche, especially when I’m overwhelmed.

Special thanks to stock providers Faestock, UmbraDeNoapte-Stock, Uttermost, Marcus J. Ranum, wyldraven, Enchantedgal-stock, and to Printable Tatoo Designs for the tatto design of the Kanji character for ‘SOUL’.

(Feel what moves you; but don’t automatically assume these
are tears of sadness; as rain-dancing can be strenuous.:)

    WHOA…….she’s so powerful!!!!!!
    I love how everything moves to her, how the light dances around her, how she’s glistening and glowing… and that WATER she’s in is exquisite!
    Everything about this makes magic, words included.

    If I must choose 1 its this one Love the power she exudes!

  • So glad you like both. I thought you might like this one better. Glad to know why. I didn’t think of that (“power”). Love hearing what you get out of this. Thanks again, Vonne.

    These are so awesome Frannie!!

  • Susan, thanks, again; so glad you like them! I think I’m putting you, not squarely, but fuzzily in this camp (since you like the colors better). After all, the words will, all too soon, be separated from the art. :)
