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
