RAINDROPS NEVER LIE

by John Yeo

To a blind person, senses speak louder than words.

The heat from the sun could be the heat from a fire,

The touch of quivering jelly could be bubbling mud.

The shadows of light could be moonlight or torchlight

But the touch of a rainshower falling from the sky

To a blind person seeking truth, raindrops never lie.

Blindness needs feelings to experience the truth,

The sound of thunder could mean gunfire and warfare.

The birds in the trees compete with insects and bees

With a cacophony of nature that is unique and pure

The waves of water battering the rocky seashore,

The feel of a million raindrops cascading from the sky

Gently caressing the eye means raindrops never lie.
