Rain

Source

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.

      That's nice. Messages sent from afar. Hadn't thought of this one, but it's cool. Much thanks, Gypsy.

      Most delightful and enchanting poetry. There are times when raindrops make me think of tears upon the window pane and other times messages sent from afar.

      Thank you Bro. Nice one. Serenity indeed!! So good of you to like my rain series.

      Ah Shauna, come to the Caribbean, Grenada to be precise. Florida is a volatile country or State, rain wise. Thank you so much!!

      I love a gentle rain. Unfortunately, here in Florida we also experience pelting, blinding, destructive rains. Those I can do without. But give me a gentle rain followed by a beautiful rainbow and I'm at peace.

      One of the best things about living in a desert is the rain. When it comes it is a celebration for all. Certainly an occasion to dance in it as we do.

      As always your words speak of serenity.

      Yes, my Sweet Ruby. Me too. So charming, so soothing! Especially if we are lying in the arms of someone else. Ha ha. Thank you so much!

      I love the rain when it dances on my windowpane. It has rained here this morning and it made the air cool and refreshing. This is beautiful Manatita!

      It's up, ThreeKeys. I'm quicker than I thought and I just read your comment. Hope you like it! Much Love.

      Venkatachariji, my brother. I seem to have lost my comment to you. Rest assured that you are a very, very dear bhaiji to me. Same age to. Much Love.

      Whatever holds meaning for you in the Carribean. Take us to the e-scapes and landscapes of what was or is for you there....

      Ha ha. Many in the past. It's been a while now that I have been writing spiritual stuff. I do an occasional romance or so to please and again to avoid boredom. But I write essentially for aspiring seekers. I have drifted from the other.

      Give me a few days and I'll give you a Grenadian flavour. I suppose that's what you're asking: The people, food, carnival, beach, weather, calypso...

      Soothing sparkles.

      Can I ask you have you written poetry about experiences in the Carribean? Would love to enter this part of the world through your own eyes manitita
