Essence Of The Rain

By Dawn Boykin

Don’t you just love the essence of the rain,

and how in a split of a second the seasons change?

From sunshine to gloom

but see, it’s that good gloom

that gloom that invites you inside

and, you know, that good gloom that keeps your insides alive

and ready to errupt and explode like the rain bursting from the clouds do

Don’t you just love the essence of the rain?

slow then racing,

the pace is crazy

it’s driving me crazy,

this rain is amazing.

It sends this tingling feeling of confirmation

and a heat thrilling, throbbing sensation down my spine

and I never want to go back outside.

I’m addicted to the essence of the rain,

that bring sweet whispers of the wind that ain’t easily maintained

But see, I don’t want to maintain the wind,

I want it to run wild and whistle sounds like the birds do-

I want it to curve and swerve and kind of sweep me off my feet you see.

I want it to make me delirious,

I want it to set me free.

I want it to warm my bones and caress my soul-

and sing songs of great ecstasy…

so long, so long

until I scream.

Don’t you just love the essence of the rain?
