Let The Rain Fall

I could smell and sense 
the showers coming in the air
with an approaching storm.
I inhale this 
light little scent of heaven.
The rain will never dampen my spirits.
No umbrella for me tonight.
But, I don't mind, 
I'll walk in the rain.

I savor this 
sweet little taste of heaven.
The flavor is cool and refreshing,
with a purity 
that is almost indescribable.
It is cleansing to my soul,
I can feel it 
washing away my cares,
and making it okay to smile, again.

I experience this 
gentle little caress of heaven.
When it soaks through 
my jacket and my jeans.
My shoes splash
in the rain 
with every step that I take.
I can hear it 
tap dancing on the rooftops, 
with invisible feet.

The streetlights 
reflect on the wet pavement,
in pools of gold and silver.
The neon signs blink, 
red and yellow, 
blue and green.
Like drips of paint, 
it puddles on the street.
Bringing color 
to where there was none before,
only a flood of gray.
Now there is a palette
of fragrances to absorb.
Creating almost a rainbow 
in the nighttime.

    Ok done yes, very good choices of where to break the lines and stanzas! 2 tiny things line 3 I'd use [the] instead of [an] 3rd stanza you don't need the [that] in line 7. When ever you write a THAT after your all done look back & think "Is the sentence clear without it? Did I meant which?"

    Really feel the rain in this. Favorite line "I can hear it tap dancing on the rooftops, with invisible feet"...so many lovely lines and vivid imagery. Congrats.

    a fav for me & 7 , the last verse is super, my only suggestion would be a few different line breaks? Congrad's on your win. Light & Love

    I understand what you mean about the line breaks. When I wrote this for Nette's contest, there was a 24 line limit, so I had to make my lines longer than I wanted to. But, since that contest is over, I am going to take your advice and do some editing! Thank you so much for the fav, Debbie. It really means a lot coming from you!
