Tropical Rain

It rains and rains and rains and rains and rains

Big, fat, heavy, drenching droplets

Beautiful on the roof

Beautiful out the window

Beautiful to the earth

Beautiful to my garden

Beautiful to the little kids who play boat races with sticks in the gutters

Beautiful on my dry skin

It’s still warm outside, as the rain falls and steams up the windows

I will sleep soundly in this rain

It’s like a lovely, soothing, song

a soft back massage

a meditation

a gift from a higher power

a reason to rest up and stay indoors and grab a cuppa

this tropical rain

is our rain

our backyard, homegrown rain

that visits every year

and stays for a while

I love you rain

Thank you for blessing me with your presence

Thank you for your lovely music

Thank you for your life

Thank you for your gift

Thank you for your medicinal effect on my psyche

Thank you for hydrating our rainforest ecosystem

Welcome home rain

please stay

for a while
