~ Rain ~

The cool morning rain
washes my body clean
of the nights restless wanting.

Thoughts of you
hang suspended
sparkling brightly in my mind.

They fill my heart 
and touch my soul
and create a tapestry of love
that envelops my very being.

As the rain slides
like a cascading waterfall
over my face
so do the thoughts of you
slipping through my mind.

I feel clean
refreshed and new
both body and soul.

Blooming like the deserts 
after the sky's long awaited tears
my heart comes alive
with your love.
