Rain
taps the roof
rocks the leaves
soaks the soil
fills me.
Then the thunder comes
and smacks me
in the back.
My eyes overflow.
I laugh
and run outside
to skip through the river
in the street.

    Love the lines:

    That’s exactly how it feels! I’m hoping for a very rainy monsoon season here in the desert. = )
