Caught In The Rain - Poem by Jeanette Telusma

My dream was finally becoming a reality
Without having to plan it.
The perfect opportunity was present.
I looked up and opened my arms.
It was raining hard.
A dream come true.
My hair was perfect.
Dressed for an outing.
Crossed body purse and all.
It rained as if there was no tomorrow.
Such a joy, a moment filled with peace.
A needed refresher to my soul.
I walked a mile and back.
No need to rush.
This was my moment to smell the roses.
This was a personal moment between me and God.
I envisioned He was there with me.
It was a wonderful time to let go
Of any cumbersome thing.
That day I felt as an eagle soaring high.
Breaking through what holds the mind takes courage.
What an exhilarating feeling it was?
I promise myself this would not be my last.

Topic(s) of this poem: courage, rain

    She walks in the rains, to wash her stresses and the strains, to kill her pains, and here she comes back without the stains! A beautiful poem on walking in the rains. For me it's poem of the day. (Report)Reply

    Beautiful. As adult we have forgotten to be in rain and feel it’s joy. Never the less when it happens nothing makes us happier than being soaked in by rain. Congratulations for a lovely poem. (Report)Reply
