Rainy Day Dance

The cloudy sky is painted
in grays of every hue
in the quiet of my room
I sit alone and blue
but then I hear the music
of the falling rain
in the beat it's tapping
on my window pane

It is an invitation
to join its dance so free
the song that it is playing
is playing just for me
and I can feel my spirit
lifting in the breeze
I see through my window
blowing in the trees

So I leave the shelter of
my hot and lonely room
to splash about in puddles
and leave behind my gloom
then like a little child
happy in her play
I dance with the raindrops
on this summer day

Although the sun's not shining
I'm filled with golden light
and everything looks lovely
that comes within my sight
and I will go on dancing
with the falling rain
splashing in the puddles
just like a child again

    I wanted to reply to your comment concerning the congratulation on my featured poem. Robin my granny was my saviour, when I was a child. Had it not been for her I would have grown up not knowing there was such a thing as Love. My parents were green at child rearing, and burden with making a living, for times were hard in rural Arkansas in the 40" and 50's. My granny seem to sense, now that I think about, that God had appointed her to show me what love is, she did her job well. Sincerely, Moses
