1,000 raindrops on lily-white skin,

1,000 lilies where sorrow has been,

1,000 sorrows are washed by the rain,

After the cleansing, pure joy will remain.


Poem #1,000

In celebration of life, healing, and the joy that comes after the rain!

    Amen. I can’t wait for that pure joy when Jesus finally cleanses me completely!

  2. Congratulations! You are incredibly prolific, both as a poet and a photographer. Here’s to 1,000 more!

    Prolific is exactly the right word. So many hours of work is that?

    • melodylowes says:

      Wow. I have no idea how many hours – hmmm. Let’s say average 10 minutes per poem – 167 hours or thereabouts? Some took way longer than 10, some less. I can’t believe now that I regularly posted 3 a day for months in a row. Sheesh…

    Congratulations on your #1000th poem and thanks so much for sharing with others!

  5. Oh WOW, this one nearly brought me to my knees, Mel. Overflowing richness, the treasure culled from a life of hard stuff (my take). Bravo on your 1000th poem (wish I’d thought to keep count of mine…)!!!

    • melodylowes says:

      Yeah – I wonder how many you’ve got? I just know this is 1000 because of how many are tagged ‘poetry’. IF you’d quit switching everything up… πŸ˜‰

      • Oh you’ve got me cackling!! I’m even choking now!! Well, I know this is gonna sound incredible–as it even surprised me–but the “switching everything up” deal has actually proved beneficial on various levels. For one thing, it proves who your real “faithful, loyal and true” folks are–they’ll follow you anywhere. And I’ve met new people–believers, poets–this 3rd time around, that I’m not sure I would have, had I remained Caddo Veil. My die-hard friends still think of me as Caddo–and I think that’s just Lovely!! So I guess, by any other username, Caddo is who I really am–who’d a thunk it?!

        Hard to shake a poetic label? Interesting, how bloggers find each other…

      • I’m betting it’s the Holy Spirit.

  7. Congratulations Melody! A wonderful achievement of pure beauty and warmth, writing inspired by the Spirit.

  8. Wow- 1,000 poems! And with wonderful pictures too πŸ™‚ Well done, Melody.

  9. Congratulations on your 1,000th poem! Here’s to many more (because they are fantastic!)
