tiny particles hold hands,
becoming one
just before racing towards the earth
as fast as gravity demands

falling alongside
all the others, dreaming
of who or what they might touch
hoping to do great

seeking the mission they were created
and joined together for,
what they were sent down from the heavens to do

maybe they’ll feed
and make things grow
or relieve parched souls
or be an answer to prayers
or the start to joyful dancing

and then quickly, their journey is over

landing, gently on a nose
and cheeks

blending with the salty tears
so no one can see
the sadness

allowing for grace
and another day to hide behind the mask
so that no one knows
but the raindrops, who
gently kissed her tears away
