Rain

I love the rain

not because of the smell

or because it makes the flowers grow

but because

when I stand beneath it

I can breathe

I am made anew

It washes away my transgressions

and it washes away the impurities the earth

has been keeping

I feel light

the earth is light

and I can see now

the grey is gone

and it is brighter now

the earth is made brighter now

the sun pushes the clouds and it is bright

there is color

my earth is made of color

the churning grey of the sea

is now a magnificent clear blue

the sky is a pure blue brightened by the sun

and I can hear it now

the birds are singing louder

and I am rejoicing louder

because the rain has made the earth whole

the rain hasd made me whole

and because it so willingly does this

I will forever be made whole

and I will hear the magnificent sounds

and my earth will no longer be grey

and I will shine

and I will feel light

and I will forever be made anew

so long as I stand beneath that rain

and let it take away my pains

I love the rain

not because of the smell

or because it makes the flowers grow

but because it freely pours

and because with it

I am made whole
