...it's a matter of control...



Puddles...and

    Rains

    

Puddles
clean and clear
droplets from Heaven

Puddles
to jump into
or span across

Rains
to fill bowls
quenching animal thirsts

Rains
to fill streams
cleaning away polutants

Rains
spreading o'er fields
irrigating our food-life

heavy rains
bigger puddles
send man and beast to higher ground
ruining crops and lifestyles

We cannot control rains or puddles...
but we can control our lives.
