The Caressing Touch

Rain in my place!
I jump in glee.
Two full hours
torrential downpour
Ice cubes fall in course.
I hear no thunder
nor see lightening.
Water. water all the way.

The small pebbles of ice
accompany. original sea water pearls.
The lawn looks like a lass
in a green outfit wearing
a stylish pearl necklace.
Trees stand majestic
like a stern dame
alert and agog.

I sit in my patio,
watch the lovely rains,
while the house bathes
scrubbing itself of
dust and dirt
the soil turns slushy.
The rains slow down
and the birds come out.
