• Nature


    The rain is falling,
    Steadily upon the roof,
    The thunder calling,
    Always more than a little aloof.

    O, how I love the rain,
    It cleanses the soul,
    And washes away the pain,
    Once more making me whole.

    The air is so clean,
    I fill my lungs with the sweet scent,
    As I exhale I feel pristine,
    But the rain does not relent.

    Rain falls all around,
    Soaking through my clothes,
    I let go of how tightly I am wound,
    And feel how my happiness grows.

    I look up into the sky,
    As water pours down my face,
    I feel as though I can fly,
    The pure elation, my heart doth embrace.

    this was great, I love the rain on a tin roof, it is so relaxing and mesmerizing but I hate strong winds which I wrote about one night I had in a strong wind called a frightening night. you are truly wonderful with your words, keep sharing thanks love Asha



    Thank you Asha. I too love rain on a tin roof, and i also hate strong winds. I live where the wind is almost constant, it is awful!

    Ahhhh, Alexia, your words are so refreshing..........standing out there in the heat of the day while the cool drops of a spring shower cools one's soul, and warms their heart.....................................g
