Kiss The Rain

Written by: Caryl Muzzey

Gray clouds spill open, falling down-pours ensue  
Cleansing air and filling lakes with sweet purity;    
Maintaining land and life’s ultimate maturity;   
Compelling a radiant sun to shine through,  
Giving very grateful eyes a pleasant view.   
After shrouding dome has lifted obscurity;  
For now, all life has acquired security.    
Earth rejoices in heaven’s generous dew.     

Embrace descending drops on a wearied soul.    
Smell the clean scent that refreshes stale air,
The splash that penetrates the mind’s domain;  
Renewing inter being with lost control.   
Not a thing in this world can ever compare,   
When one takes time to stop and kiss the rain.
