All day long,
the ceaseless rain;

All day long
the sweet refrain:

He walked this way, once,
surely, we will meet again?

A poet wrote - 'The tears I shed yesterday have become rain'. These past few days, England has seen more rain than she usually does at this time. While the gardens are joyful, the storms wreak havoc in people's lives. A few days ago marked the passing of someone very special, and the rain echoes the tears of those he left behind. But everyday, for a brief spark, a ray of sun pours through and suddenly, the world is clearer, brighter, lovelier than ever.

Sigh, so beautiful, Shaista...words and images. The world is a lovelier place because you are in it.

It does seem that Nature's tears are flowing more often lately. It's anger is manifesting in storms and destruction in all parts of the world more readily, lately.

We wipe the tears and pick up after nature's anger because we still have hope
