'Feel the Rain'
The clouds grow thick and darken the skies,
I think that rain is in the air tonight, and the desert thirsts so.
And so it begins-
First, the smell… that wonderful ozone twang in the air,
The wind picks up, my heartbeat quickens.
Then, drop by drop, tears begin to fall from the sky,
Rain has come.
The desert floor shows polka-dots, as it desperately tries to quench
It’s dry madness,
Then- in a frenzy, it begins to pour.
I open my arms, outstretched and wanting,
Smell the rain, taste the rain, feel the rain.
Embrace the rain in all its madness,
Never take her tears for granted, her sorrow, her pain-
For the desert can be unforgiving, and its tortured skin,
Craves the moisture like a drug.
And the momentary lapse in judgment, can leave you
So feel the rain.
