Summer rain

“Everytime I see the lightening, everytime I hear the thunder…
I can feel you when the wind blows, blows right through my heart…
Somewhere in my heart I’m always dancing with you in the summer rain “

~ Belinda Carlisle


Summer rain

on my way home
as twilight touched the sky,
rain suddenly came, searching
fresh air and the velvet of exposed skin

fine drops drawing summer in hearts,
they smell the wind and disappear
leaves and branches dancing,
water laughs at my efforts to stay dry

my purple umbrella, guest of honor here
soaking wet clothes ready to travel
thunder and lightning against clear skies
clouds invade, but does it matter

eyes, hands, looking, slipping,
rainbows will drive the cars,
will send the green shadows away,
while our feet share a puddle.


Dedicated to summer boy … the one that made me see rain through his eyes.
