soft rain

Soft Rain 

I like rain, not hard, angry rain with an attitude
who, was neglected by the mother cloud, and 
angrily show its hate towards those who had 
nothing to do with its misbegotten infanthood. 
No I´m thinking of soft rain that is like a caress,
a kiss of eternities promises.

And nature is still, this is a moment of rapture 
a longing for so long denied blissfully fulfilled.
The dampness of my skullcap and my alpaca
jacket is so soft that it almost feels like oil, but
I know I´m just a spectator under an umbrella 
who ought to go home and lit the fire.
