Dancing With the Rain

One day there came a shower of delight, which pitter-pattered on my window pane. With youth’s exuberance, my mind took flight. Outside I ran, embracing April’s rain. How sweet its scent! My soul was filled with mirth, for I was truly living in the “now.” Upon my lips, I tasted earth’s rebirth as spring’s refreshment fell upon my brow. I paused nearby my ornamental pear, inhaling deeply, hearing sky fall’s sound. The world was singing; fragrance filled the air. I then began to twirl and twirl around. Oh, how I wish to feel that way again - so young and hope-filled, dancing with the rain! Written 11/13/13 by Andrea Dietrich for nette onclaud's Fragrance of Rain Poetry Contest

    Hi Andrea, I totaly Loved this one. I'm one of those fools who wants to walk In the rain. There Is a certain scent In the air when the rain falls. This one brings back some wonderful memories. This Is a beautiful piece. The words just dance off the tongue. The pictures you paint are so vivid and clear In the mind. I can feel the rain. I can smell the scent the rain brings. This my friend Is real. This write makes me feel young again. Have a good day. Catch you Later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    You haven't lived until you've been to Glastonbury When its raining , Dancing to live bands when you are up to your knee's in mud is an experience not to be missed. Spent this morning paying some of those silly bills you told me about, lol
