The Shapes of Rain

The Shapes of Rain

Imagine raindrops and you see tears,  but clouds do not  cry
Over England,  clouds excrete ice crystals
That melt as they fall and tumble, balling, falling
Surface tension marries colliding drops yet divorce is common
Drops flatten underneath where the air speed is greater
So mini domes drop and splat on the high dome of St Paul
Plummeting farther , flattening further
Rain discs are what hits the London pavement
Losing their identity in puddles and pools
