Thoughts about Rain

Posted August 20, 2013 & filed under Notebook.

When it rains, I close my eyes.

I see all the colors it makes!

I listen to it tap my window.

But what if I didn’t have a house?

I’d be outside in the pouring rain!

It might be fun at first

to run and spin in the rain.

I’d feel it in my hair and on my cheeks.

But what if I didn’t have a house?

I couldn’t go back inside and get changed.

I’d just have to walk around in squishy clothes

and wait for the sun to come out.

The Rain

Rush of water
Coming down to us from the skies
After rain, rainbow

Raindrops want to be balloons.
They fall down, but push themselves up.
But they do not succeed,
Like balls bouncing down, but never up.
Gray clouds turn sad with teardrops
Raining down.
