A little spot of rain

Slate clouds fill the sky

Drops of rain fall steadily

Wind whips around the trees

thunder rumbles islowly


The storm arrives with vengence

Rain pours from the sky heavily

It pushes its way through the sealed window

The patio becomes a pond as the water rises


Lightening carves its way through the slate

The water collects with nowhere to go

A branch snaps as the wind takes hold

A clap of thunder startles me


Slate clouds turn to pale grety

Wind blows softly

Rain drops become little spots

The water is dying away.



Rain Drops to feel alive

Softly failing rain gently touching the leaves above me
The newness is so much greener today
From french lime green, to apple to emerald
Each green looking shiney and new
The patter of raindrops are gentle and quiet
Landing on my face, making me feel refreshed
The canopy of trees is over my head
They catch the drops as they intensify
Heavy droplets fall faster, harder and louder
They slip from the leaves and land on my neck
Cool wetness slips down my coat
I shudder and smile, I feel alive
