I knew what I had to do
The breathy giggles and speading heart beat
Tell tale signs
The thunder laughing and the rain patting
I couldn't help it!
Racing to the window
The sun was glistening in the west
The storm having too much fun in the east
I knew what I had to do!
Finally outside, a great feat really as I raced
Then, with hesitation, opened that screen door
I tiptoed along the already soggy green and brown ground
The ivy on the side of the house dripping
And then I ran!
Spinning and spinning!
The tree had shelter but I didn't want it
The drops of crystal kissing my skin
I finally felt at peace with the earth
