Every Day Rain

The Only Thing On My Mind

I wake up and that"s all I see

The little rain drops that go tap tap tap on the trees

I wonder how many buckets of water would this rain fill ?

If I stacked them up for all to count

Certainly the Guiness Book Of Records would agree

More rain than they have ever seen

That would be some chore being responsible for gathering the rain that has dropped

It has rained Saturday,Sunday and Monday too

When will the rain finally stop

The flowers and trees need the water

It gives gardens and grass growing power

Where is the sun ?

That warm beautiful sun

Dry up the mud and turn my day into a beach day

Where I can walk on the hot sand and get a tan

Everything I touch is wet

My daily paper gets all soggy

It turned the news into the blues

Now the front headlines read More Rain On The Way

Each person I see talks about the rain

What a pain

When will it stop ?

People are grumpy and sad

They even get mad for no reason at all

Traffic has slowed down because the roads are slippery and wet

Unbrellas have bloomed some red some white

Bouncing in the dim light

Keeping people dry covering everything but their eyes

We can't stop mother nature

What can we do ?

Enjoy the rain the beautful rain

Think of it as a healing medicine that touches the skin

Making everything healthy again

Making the sick well

All our problems could be solved

Our troubles would slowly disappear

Now we would see people out in the street

Dancing to a new beat

Maybe buck naked and bare

Looking for more rain to come

Now that would be a day that I would like to see

Where fighting would stop and hand shaking and hugs would be second nature

Laughing and joking would make each day different

Getting all wet would now turn to pleasure instead of being all upset

Seeing you dripping wet

Would be more fun than ever

Move over as I want to get wet too and feel as great as you

What a great angle on rain, after reading your piece I started to smile and thought about all the crazy things humans would do in ancient history to get the skies to give up some rain.

Bravo!

Cruelkindness You should write all the ways you have found that would be a hub I would read over and over.If I was an indian waiting for rain I will do a little chant.Rain,rain you cover the ground with your freshness.Making the dry come alive.Bless me with your wonder.Now I hear thunder.The winds whipping up and twirling around.I hear it.That musical sound.That can only be one thing.Beautiful rain cover me with your wetness.I continue to dance with smiles and grace.Have a wonderful day for I can now share all my good luck and good fortune with you today.liapie To think that rain can cover every spot within miles what a miracle is that.Thanx for reading and sharing.

Deborah Brooks rain will appear and then one day it will go away.We may wait and wait it is only when the time is right the rain will come back into our lives again.Patiently the rain will transform life into a beauty we will always love.Thanx so much for reading and sharing ,I love that we are both touched by rain.

raciniwa How refreshing it is to walk in the rain .The feeling of every bad thought washed clean.Holding up your arms and feeling the endless raindrops that don't miss one spot.Thanx for reading and sharing.
