It rained for the first time in a long time.
I woke up smiling at the world through the window.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved rain and I wanted to share a poem I wrote today. I’ve been reading Cowper’s work, so that’s kind of where the line length came from.
Today is the first overcast day that I’ve seen
Since I left Thailand months ago. I’ve been
Waiting on this. I love the rain a whole lot
And without it here, the grass and I have not
Been at all the same, because we love to let
the rain fall down. I know I’ve only met
A couple people who share my sentiment,
But I’ll keep smiling when I see clouds relent,
And release their loads.
