Songs in the Rains

Rate This

Pleasures of the skin
Kissing the drops
One by one they come
Toward mother earth
Like honey they slide
Awakening every sense
That ever was present
My dreamy eye lids
Raise like curtains
Over the stage
Looking into the blues
Drinking the feelings
Those unexpected guests
Souls and hearts

That euphoric pulses
How much power and passion
That one drop of cool
Generate in my mind
I thank my stars
For being alive
For this day and forth!

Just imagine if a novice like me could write like this what all those great poets and lyrics could do! That is the magic of rain. When I was a little girl I used to love to walk in the rain. When it rained I would hardly get inside until my mother started raising her voice. There were days I wanted to just get wet in the rain all day long instead of going to school so I would make up some story to skip it. Rainy season is the best time of the year for me even after so many years. Sometimes that little girl in me comes out and takes me into the rain getting wet, feeling those cool drops, sticking my tongue out to taste them. Of course, I know I cannot trust that water to be as clean as when I was small, but hey when you are having fun, who cares right? As I grew up these rains gave me sweet dreams that were so appropriate for a teenager. Just getting my clothes wet gave me warm sensations inside that lasted all night. I still remember holding hands and making out with my husband as a newlywed one of those rainy nights sitting on the terrace watching the city lights glimmer in the wetness and the whole grey skies opening up a world of joys.

Rainy season as it was even twenty years ago is not the same anymore. People got busier with survival struggles. Nobody has time to look outside the window to watch those drop falling down and giving the sweet and wet aromas of mother earth. Some of our children probably never went into the rain once in their life time.
