Rain

sol

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.  ~Langston Hughes

 

It began as a gentle shower,
barely needing an umbrella for cover.
It steadily grew stronger and stronger
until torrential sheets were sweeping
across the roof.

 
Safe inside
I don’t mind the rain.
Its song is rhythmic,
Soothing and cleansing.

 
I close my eyes and
let the rain’s song wash over me
as I begin to let go

 
Of worries that creep to mind,
Of ailments that plague me,
Of things I cannot control.

 
As the rain nourishes
the parched ground
I allow it to expunge my worries
and nurture my soul.
