Let Friendship Rain

“But if the while I think on thee, dear friend
All losses are restor’d, and sorrows end.”

– fr. Sonnet 30, William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616)

(Yes to amity rain. No to enmity reign.)

friendship is like the rain
rain rises from the hearth of earth
friendship arises from the heart of man

rain pours when it comes
but sometimes
(like a friend) never comes
when needed most

rain erodes mountains of limestone
as friendship washes away hills of sorrow
rain is borne by dark clouds
and may come with the storm
as friendship finds true meaning in adversity

the rain whets our appetite for the sun
as friendship makes us hope for brighter days
rain makes plants grow and flowers bloom
friendship makes us grow and bloom as well.

friendship and rain are heaven’s gifts!

thick and thin
is a friend.
