A Small Stone about Raindrops

Plump raindrops
Leave spots behind
On clean windows

  1. Since you’ve started me thinking about drops, let’s see if it inspires a stone…

    One tiny drip of clear soda
    from a seventy-five cent bottle
    becomes a one-inch black blot
    requiring a sixty-dollar cleaning.

    That was no stone–that was an avalanche! I enjoyed yours, though, Lori! And I’ll visit A Handful of Stones soon.

  2. Not an avalanche. Many stones are this length (do check out the site), but perhaps a bit more upbeat, which is what I see in your writing time after time. Actually, upbeat describes you in a nutshell. Upbeat is good medicine. Thanks for stopping by!
