Christened By A Summer Rain

I spread my blanket under the trees And marvel at the fickle breeze It takes a turn, from warm to cool To soothe my brow, as I lie down I nap among the shady groves Awakened by the scent of rain One little drop, then down it pours And like a child who plays outdoors I'm christened now in nature's eyes And laugh at summer's sweet surprise

    I can be so in the moment you describe here right now-- we could use a bit of rain in this hot weather. I really enjoyed this, how you wrote this in a descriptive and lighthearted way-- what a beautiful moment that would be! Thank you so much for passing by my poems, such a delight to see you-- & leaving me such heartwarming comments-you are so sweet and in answer to you question: Yes!! I am nuts! Totally. I was smiling as I read what you wrote, thank you very much. Sending you warm hugs!
