' Summer Showers '


Last night
And the night before
It poured and poured
Wind uprooting the trees
Snapping electric lines too…

I sat
In the darkness
Trying to capture
The straying night
I sat
In the darkness
My skin burning
At the hard hitting raindrops
I sat
In the darkness
Listening to the rain
Tiptoeing into my heart
I sat
In the darkness
The rain bringing with it
Your name cascading into my ears

That’s the best part
Of summer showers, you see
They are amazingly refreshing!

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
