Let It Rain
Let the rain fall down on my locks today,
And nourish them with the moisture.
As my face turns up to the cloudy sky,
I smile and squint with pure pleasure.
I missed the rain in these long hot days,
Like a child might miss their father.
You long to know that their welcomed return.
Is blessed with the purpose to shower.
The thunder, the lightning, the wind, and the wet,
Drench the arid earth so to nourish.
Wake up dry land and the plants that you breed,
Drink up the storm so to flourish.
Give the sun a day to slumber,
It has done its' job so well.
It worked for weeks with no day off,
As the grasses and flowers will tell.
I'll dance in and out of the house today,
And it all will depend on the weather.
But tomorrow I welcome back the sun.
The earth quenched right now as to pleasure.
