Kiss The Rain

New Orleans summertime temperatures rise.
Mellow sounds of smooth jazz softly plays.
I drink mint juleps on these long lazy days.
It's sticky and too hot until it rains.

Drops fall gently, it's a glorious sound.
Dancing and spinning I tilt my head back.
Rain kisses my hot mahogany red parted lips.
Sweeter than that of a mountain spring,
Throat is parched, I instantly want more.
Summertime's sweet rain quenches my thirst.
Rain is short lived here in the south.

The humidity after the rain zaps me, does me in
So I sit once again enjoying the music of lite jazz.

    I think it interesting that you included the last line with this poem! It just seems out of place unless you know how jazz effects you when you listen to it...and it does have that effect when I listen to it as well! This is a wondrous write, I loved reading this masterful piece this evening, Great Work!!

    Russell your right It was a last minute thought. I rewrote it. It's a much better poem thanks to you. I always love an honest critique. It makes me dig deeper for better thoughts. Thanks again. Warm Smiles, Connie

    Good one, Connie! Dancing in the rain is refreshing. Maybe you should give Gene Kelly some competition and try some singing too while you are at it! :)
