The Cooling Rain


There Is Nothing As Refreshing

I feel each droplet

So quickly spaced

One after another

Landing like little paratroopers

Touching down

From each area of my body

They claim a new spot

As soon as they hit

Another one quickly follows

A full scale invasion

So massive it is hard to believe

Such precision

In a matter of minutes hundreds of the tiniest wet explosions

Bounce off on impact

Looking up they seem almost invisible

Even though you can clearly hear

The soft echoing in your ears

Like a low pitched shhhhhh

Even with my head down

I feel them brush against my face and chin

In a moment of joy

My body feels exhilarated

The dampness gave me a sudden chill

So beautiful

So magnificent

I look off in a distance

All I can see is dark clouds above

The wind has picked up

Moving these little fellas

Even quicker along

No sun just dull light

What a special feeling

I am engulfed in a wave of rain

That slowly erased any pain

My body exposed and vulnerable

Has been only nourished and revitalized

By the amazing h2o

Michael-Milec There are so many feelings to experience in the wonders of the rain. I look around and think do you know how it is to water one garden and get every spot. The rain does it effortlessly for miles. If that isn't the coolest thing I have ever seen. Thank you so much for your comments and delightful spirit. I wish you a calm and wonderful afternoon.

Linda Crampton I really do love the rain. I dance in it until my wife tells me to stop. Splashing through puddles I love too. Some things I guess you have to be a kid to do. Thank you so much for your comments and sharing your insight. When I can't do anything else I reach up high and touch the rain. There is no law against it yet. My wife thinks I look foolish. I tell her it might be true but I feel great. Have an inspiring day.

Gypsy Rose Lee We should appreciate all types of weather each has it's own special qualities that make it enjoyable and sometimes frustrating. I agree with you time does travel fast. I heard it is because you love what your doing if not it goes real slow. Thank you so much and enjoy those beautiful blue sky's and sunny days.

No rain here, just blue sky and sun, days drift by and I cannot believe how time flies.

I love your description. You've conveyed the sensation of being outside while it rains beautifully.

DREAM ON, You have interleaved so much life in your poem, one (that's me) can feel the shower of blessing physically, mentally and spiritually.

Louise Powles I appreciate the sweet words of comfort. Many times I think what I say and feel only makes sense to me. Then I throw it out there hoping to catch the tiniest fish. I jump for joy when I get a nibble or a peck. Other times like now I am ecstatic when you read one of my stoems story/poems and really like it. I don't know what to say or what to do. So I continue to write hoping to please you. I am at my happiest when I see people smile and feel good not just about themselves but life all around them. Most of my stoems poke fun at my life and my misfortune turned into fortune. How can I make other people feel better when they have hit an obstacle in their life. It is so hard to overcome when you face a problem alone. Then when you realize you are not alone but we all are different but we deal with the same bad times and good times in our life. What a wonderful way to share and care. So even though I leave this page your words travel with me like luggage on a trip. You wouldn't go far without your luggage and neither would I without words of encouragement and kindness. Thank you so much. Make today very special and do something that makes you feel beautiful inside and out.
