I Love the Rain

I hear the rain outside my window
          soothing, comforting, pattering
          I open the door to see
          the glorious rain
          It falls from the sky, glistening

          Dancing on the ground
          caressing all it touches
          I love the rain
          I breathe in deeply
          the freshness of the air, sweet

          I step outside
          to feel the rain upon my face
          falling, dripping, splashing
          I look up to the sky
          feeling marvelous inner peace
          I shut the door


          I love the rain

A refreshing rain to wash away all that is hurting to make you feel clean and new again...a wonderful read netswan, I enjoyed it very much!

 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

***netswan,
us rain lovers have got to stick together!
the rain is a curious beast, it cleanses yet
can also be perilous.
this ois a great piece.

Teresa - excuse me, miss...but, your talent is showing.    Love this one, my friend!  I like the rain sometimes, too (except when I'm depressed.)  Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece!

I love your poem, especially the line "I breathe in deeply, the freshness of air, sweet." I identify with that line.
