the summer rain

raindrops

raindrops

summer rain reminds me of home
when my siblings and i
stand in the rain
until our tiny bodies shiver and lips blue
and when the rain had stopped
and we’re all combed and dried
we would dash out one more time
for the simplest pleasures
of wading in giant puddles
hand in hand, giggling
splashing until our eyes hurt
and bodies wet all over again
oh, i love the summer rain.

      Thanks for your kind words, Sue! I’m glad this reminds you of happy childhood memories. There’s quite a bit of rain of late. I sit back and watch with a big smile. Always happy to see you here. Have a great weekend!
