I Would Be Rain...
Friday, June 08, 2012
If you could be something entirely different, just for a moment in time, what would you be?
I would be rain.
Calming and welcoming.
Tickling the flower petals in the garden until they wiggle in reply.
Starting a domino effect as tree leaves release the weight of raindrops in their grasp, from one leaf to the next.
Hydrating everything in its path, until spent, and everything it touches nourished.
Furry, enveloping, and delicately scented.
Gentle rain that softly graces everything, and sounds melodic as it falls inside rain gutters, bouncing off mailboxes.
Windchimes omit and entirely different song.
The subtle taps on the window are like an invitation to come out and play.
Can you hear it?
