Rain Spell

Hands clapped in the heavens,
a nurturing applause,
rain rhythmic on the leaves, the pavement, the rooftop
…steady beats without pause.

Clouds sink to shrink the sky,
my vista deepens,
nature’s breath upon the land, the trees, my cheek
…a cloak to sink in.

Oh, how I’ve missed the rain,
my senses filled,
the world softening, glistening, instilling lost wonder
…time stands still.
