Beyond the Cleansing Rain

Standing here I am,

Lovely rain soaking me through and through,

Cleansing my weary soul,

Brisk coolness falling onto my face,

Washing everything away,

Clearing my mind.

Listening to the rain,

Calming my very being.

It's a song,

A note in Nature's music,

Listen hard...

Beyond the song is... what?

Listen harder...

The howling of the damp winds,

Infectious Life,

Breathing with the wind.

And here I am...

Soaking through and through,

In the midst of Nature's notes,

In the breathing of Life,

Through the falling rain.

Draining from grey clouds high in the black sky.

Lovely rain.

Midnight rain.
