Spring Rain

Written by: Katie Telling

The air is thick and sweet
with the promise of spring rain,
and a slight breeze nips at a 
lock of my hair, 
coaxing it out of its neat bun.
The cool prickle of raindrops 
on my skin is familiar,
and I watch as the droplets
on my arm get caught in a maze
of hair follicles before slipping
off toward the ground
beneath me.
