Teaching Metaphor Artist Statement
I am a raindrop.
I come from a much higher source.
I help living things to grow, to live, to thrive.
I replenish, renew and cleanse.
When I am combined with other raindrops, I nourish the earth
with one of it’s most important elements and nutrients and be far
greater than I ever could be all alone.
When I fall on a body of water, the ripples caused by my impact
go on and on upon the surface while my contents nourish and restore
every living thing within the body of water.
A beautiful dance gently emerges, flowing freely, and gracefully, as was intended.
I wash away the salty trails left by tears of frustration, hurt and ignorance.
I mirror reflections of beauty and wonder accented in prisms and colors of the rainbow.
I reflect the colors of the source from which I came, casting the colors
of the rainbow and spreading hope upon those things I nourish.
Such is the way that I drop in on each soul.
