Rain

golden dusts settle
on puddles
rain falls
curtains of liquid beads
incessantly falling

blessings from heaven
anointing the parched soil
willing the seeds
of dead grass to hope

Ginger Rogers
dancing in the rain
wet veils
for fears and tears

the rain on the ground travels
from bubbling brooks to river
sea and ocean
particles joined...
and back to the skies.

The Rain

When I think of the rain I think of so many wonderous thoughts.
I imagine the beauty that surrounds it,
I fantasize about how sensual it feels whenever it drips down onto my hair and skin or in between my cleavage.
How soft yet so tender these rain drops feel against my body it's as if they are kissing me with God's tears.
I also think about the natural, but musical sound the rain makes whenever it hits the ground.
Drip, drop, drip, drip, drop, drip, drop, drip, drop, drip, drip, drop, drip.
Then it follows with tap, drip, drop, tap, drop, drop, tap, tap.
I am in love with this sound,
I can't help but feel intoxicated by it as I want to play in it like a little kid.
Kicking and twirling and spinning all around while dancing and laughing in the rain.
I can't understand those that don't take in this magic,
That can't appreciate this beauty.
Wouldn't want to enjoy the subtle feel of the rain as it's pattering away.
I would much rather sit in the rain than to walk on a sunny day.
When I think about the rain I can't help, but lust over wanting to make love in the rain.
Having that special climactic moment on the ground, drenched from the rain while screaming and crying passionately.
I feel so high whenever I see rain.
It soothes me,
It heals me,
It makes me feel at ease.
If only you can see how peaceful and beautiful it is to me then you would know.
This weather makes me feel God's passion, rage, and depression.
When I think of the rain I think of God using it as a way to cool off the heat of our hatred and anger.
When I think of the rain I simply think of beauty.

Protection of Rain

Let me cleanse you, my dear one.
Kiss me. Laugh and dance
With me as the bright sun

Has gone away. You are in a trance,
My dear, chasing after every last
Drop. You are going after every chance.

You always questioned and asked
Me every one of your questions that
I cannot always answer. Your past

Mistakes are erased. Lay down flat
On the ground as you feel it all
Heal every wound and cut.

I put you to sleep, as every brawl
And all the anger is forgotten.
I keep you protected in that ball.

Acid Rain

It's hard for me to explain the pain & it's source

I search for opportunity & aim at the doors

I step outside and then it rains then it pours

In vein there are wars, I explain with remorse :

If I could do anything, "...right-this-second, what would it be?"...
 
I'd be in the rain standing----

Thank you, Lilly, for a great entry

I drop,
my clothes
fall.
Only a circular bond of oxygen
and hydrogen.
remain.

My last postmortem tear.
It goes to the ground --
Petunia drinks it,
I stay there for a while.

I wonder how I am able to think now,
when I'm dead.

Silence.
Disintegration.
A canal pushes me up and I'm lighter.
Is it because I moved on, or lost the hydrogen?

I float up,
up,
still higher, and higher,
until they accept me as their own.

Oh look, more hydrogen!

Now I feel heavier again.
Almost as heavy as before,
before I fell from ....

And as I fall again,
I wonder ...
Are all rain droplets last tears?

I wonder where I will fall this time.

Drops to Rainbow

I see sexy shoulders
White and Bare ..
Giving great glint and shimmering
Through my gloom and haze
They gleam
Down there
Shining through any melancholic mood
I might produce
And with their opal sheen
They do seduce
My gloooomy countanence
Her White shoulders
Do mend
My surly frown
Giving my grumpy mouth
A Colorful bend
I am quite tickled by my grin
So in the end
I leave her Great fortune
X marks the spot....dig easy
My yummy new friend.....

The minute the rain hits the pavement,
I found entertainment,
Look out the window like 'Ah shit',
Witness me strip down to my draws
cannonball into this water reservoir,
It's hard to stay dry so I get soaking wet,
I needed this to keep my emotions in check,
I guess I will keep floating till I forget,
That before i was in over my head,
So I keep my baggage on land,
As I watch each wave break upon the sand,
I feel no pain as the droplets of rain drain off my hands,
I embrace nature's message as I stand,
in and endless expanse of water dancing,  
I am amazed... what are the chances,
Nature pressed play and I am in a damn trance like dream,
where i am jumping in streams and making a splash,
after I open all of the taps I can finally relax
but in a flash like lightening blasting it will pass,
so I leave my freighting actions back in the past,
i find peace at least as this moment lasts,
but really, how did you expect me to react?
I make my own path and quit following the script,
meditate to awake inner bliss,
high tide is great i love to swim,
bad vibes levitate gone with the wind,
my mission is to be my own best friend,
through a new vision i may transcend material ends,
i said it before so I'll say it again
happiness comes from within,
never dismiss what is inside your skin,
we just may persist through all the bullshit that this life gives,
trials and tribulations make the mind fit,
so I commit to transmit experiences,
in hopes it just assists just one of those kids,
who are scared of the world that they are living in,
Till they witness people playing in the rain,
i admit it is strange what it takes to wash out the stains-
our environment shapes our brains,
so don't complain just embrace the rain,
forfeit the shame and give it a page,
absorb the pain we coming of age,
remain at the top of the game as the clouds fade away,
how could rain change everything..
..if only for a day!

THE FALLEN
Refrain of The Rain

I am here
To mask your tears
Don't be afraid...

I am here
To tend the earth's oasis
Don't be afraid...

I am here
To relieve you of your thirst
Don't be afraid...

I am here
To cleanse the dusty pavements
Don't be afraid

I am here
Just hiding above the clouds
Don't be afraid

Don't
Unless...

Remember
Lucifer was once an angel
Before he was a fallen

DANCING SHADOWS

listening to pouring rain
dancing upon the tin roof
tapping a sweet song

watching a candles flame
flickering in darkness
reflecting upon my skin

smile reflects off glass
when I look into my eyes
by flames intimate light

movement of my shadow
swaying upon on the wall
dance in the rain by candle light
