ODA A La LLuvia. (Ode To The Rain). A Sonnet
She came, kissed our emotions and embraced our hearts.
Singing a psalm of solace and longing,
She brought the soft drizzle;
Encircled us in Her delight.
Ah! How I remember!
The first time that She fell,
There was a hush and a stillness that Caribbean morn,
Salome’s silk-woven negligee,
Waltzing to our bed-time rhythmical breath.
I remember Her stillness … tempo,
Her movements with the zephyrs;
Her crisp, pure seasonal dance,
Cleansing away our carnality,
To make us whole again.
