Sadness travels in dewy raindrops

Splashing merrily on soft soil

It carries an aroma of past regrets

Tickling your senses seductively

It laughs heartily at your resistance

And blows apart your fortified walls with gentle breath

Dripping into the earth it composts the land

And builds better bacteria for stunted growth

It's friendly visit is never welcomed

And yet it doesn't despair but dutifully completes its service

It is patient and buries it's belief

That you will one day open the doors 

And invite it in fro some tea and warmth
