THE FIRST RAINS

The First Rains

www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [The First Rains]

When the first rains shall come
Tumbling down from the leaden skies
I shall dance under the downpour
As a sign of my heartfelt welcome

I imagine how the moment will be
Nose breathing in the freshness
Goosebumps dancing on soothed skin
Silvery rivulets, sluicing down
Vestments clinging oh-so-lovingly
Rain-soaked weight tugging this way and that
My feet tapping a beat on sodden earth
Formless army falling soft
In pursuit of the Heat and Drought
The world becomes splash of vivid hues

I’ll look up at the heavens
Eyes fighting a losing battle with the blinding fall
And I’ll blow a kiss up to God
For the delight of rain upon thirsty earth
