Clouds go by as I look to the sky
Freezes me in the in-between
Busy with lifeís comings and goings
Not pausing to see
Not ever wondering why
Time still remains for all just the same
Canít forget the last dream
In which I had my peace of mind
Donít know what a day like today means
Suddenly I remember her name
And it starts pouring rain

Everyone should sometimes come undone
And let that feeling flow through
The most peaceful time of day
What wonders solitude can do
Just letting the raindrops come
I have no shame watching the rain
Nothing will ever satisfy me
The way I am with opened mind
A spirit finally set free
Suddenly I forget her name
And it keeps pouring rain

"I have no shame watching the rain"

...exquisite sensory sentiment here, and beautifully expressed. Wonderful piece of writing.

this was absolutely fantastic! It was mystical and powerful...the rain is something to be in awe of for sure. Your poem swept me away and made me feel as though I was a part of this "picture". Thanks for making me smile.
