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
