April Rain

Let the rain kiss you

Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops

Let the rain sing you a lullaby

The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk

The rain makes running pools in the gutter

The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night

And I love the rain. 
By Langston Hughes

Beautiful Rain

It drips, it drops, it pierces my heart
How could such beauty be so sad at the same time?
Some love it, others hate it
Many pray for it when its presence is gone

Sometimes it’s calm, sometimes it’s not
Its fury scares me
Its delicateness warms me

Still I wonder
How could such beauty be so sad at the same time?

Umbrellas Off

A gust of wind blew strong and hard rattling the roofs
The rain, piercing like pins against the skin
Stronger both rain and wind grew
Roaring through the thin silence
No thunder or lightning present
Yet we all fear the beast
Better not let it catch you
Take cover, take shelter
