The gentle touch of the rain felt warm against my skin.

Not the cold downpour of a winters day,

But the sudden flash of a summer's rain falling over me

People rushing to find shelter as the first drops form

quickly, turning to a deluge of moisture forming high above

And raining down on their bodies

I feel it's touch soaking me to the skin.

clothes become one against the flesh

Twisting against my body, as I turn in the rain.

The brightness of the sun in the sky

contrasting against the clouds formed above

As they give life to the downpour.

A moment of magic in the brightness of the summer day

My senses coming to life, the beauty lost on so many

The touch of the rain as far as the eye can see
