I Fell In Love With the Rain

I fell in love with the rain today,

the heavy, steady drip,

the cold splash on my nose,

hands,

feet,

face,

head.

The cool, refreshing balm

on the parched desert without—

and within,

washing away the dirt,

the stains,

the hurt,

the pains,

leaving naught but hope.

I fell in love with the rain today;

tomorrow, the sun will shine.
