Rain on me

6f8b5a5805b609c6cd2610ffb8cc708aOctober 27, 2019 it rained hard in San Nicolas. The rainbirds, the harbingers of crystal clear droplets to come will emerge to sing again next May.  The drizzle will return when dew drops well up in the atmosphere.  A tradition that can be counted among all of our blessings.  Before the pour, the sprinkle lets us…be baptized, like a bird splashing in God’s freedom fountain.  The first puddles are glorious, and we stomp with joy as it washes and refreshes. Rain widens 20140212-201638and ripples the circumference of all that we can imagine. It fills and overflows buckets into lakes, rivers and streams.  The Ocean is it’s grandma, always welcoming the wet tears of joy. The earth bursts into bloom with plenty of room for more and more rain. It is what moistens and feeds all that thirsts for life.  It soaks the sands, it softens hands. Rain gushes into barrels and swirls down drains.  It ushers us into gladness for a time to wear galoshes as it splashes.  A soul looks up, face catching wet drops, thankful for the energizing, and nourishing downfall of water….. 0f47102e65e4cc3cb3a745579d2962e2armed with an umbrella, or not…. like a child we are electrified and ready to pounce! Silently squealing “I’m blest”, I slumber best in the dashing, crashing pour of rain.  Ahhh, the rain, let it twinkle on the rooftops and make me snore!
