la la (just listen)

I will not say
that I danced
naked

but
when the sound
of fattened raindrops
falling
filtered through my mind
to wake me

at first
I lay as still
as though
I was in
a coma

then
I quickly rose
and walked
in darkness
through the house

to the back door
and
the outside

I stood
for awhile

drew breath
filtered clean
by the falling rain

la la lala

listen

just listen

the sound
of falling rain

  1. A land of drought and flooding rains … more the former than the latter, but boy is it a wonderful feeling to stand in the rain and smell the earth come alive, to wash away the stink of burning and death with the promise of a new beginning.
