Rain splashes on skin
some water sticks forever
adds to the body and soul
the rest falls elsewhere

Very deep. (uh, if you'll pardon the watery pun)

I liked this one because it can be interpreted in so many ways - what does the rain water represent? And where is 'elsewhere'?

Also it has such a strong presence - it jumps out of the screen (or page) at me. It shouts "Read me." and "Think about me." Good stuff.

Spudley -
Spudley, thanks for the comment! I was wondering if I liked it so vague, but in the end, I left it that way on purpose. Peace, ak-

Many meanings
I agree with Spudley, this poem, at first read seems simple, but, everytime I read it, I come up with a different "situation" it could describe.

A good tiny jewel
