Caught in the Rain​.​.​.

about

The other day I got caught in the rain... I was exercising in the park, when the clouds released its blessings... of course, in the beginning it didn’t feel like blessings...

lyrics

I went out to the 
Park to move muscles
Hang from monkey bars 
Spray painted red and blue to 
Match the swings
Children don’t seem to use anymore 

I wanted to
Let my inner child run free 
Play a bit 
Get my heartbeat up just 
Like when I was younger and 
You couldn’t pay me to stay indoors

I love...
Soaking up sun rays
Communing respectfully with bees and 
Ants and other such living things that 
Dwell in the grass and
Distill messages from flowers others might call weeds

It was while I was 
Frolicking merry and gay that the 
First few drops descended 
Mind you I’d seen the clouds and 
Instinct whispered something about an umbrella
But the experts from my smart phone forecasted 
Only clouds and so only clouds 
It must be until more 
Drops started materializing
Marching vigorously across my 
Face and arms and hair until 
Finally I conceded and 
Ran for cover under the 
Leaves of trees

Down the drops stormed 
Like grasshoppers playing tag upon my back
Making me squirm and wiggle until the 
Beauty of the thing lifted misty eyes and 
I became amazement and wonder and
Gratitude 
Surrounded by branches nodding in 
Agreement to the sermon 
Sister wind preached 
Thunder shouting ache and amen and 
Me beholding who 
God is
