Pray for Rain (a quatern)


As the rain falls, washing my face,
I can breathe a little deeper,
feel my shoulder tension release,
imagine wings that might unfurl.

I can ponder flights of fancy,
as the rain falls, washing my face,
feel my heart begin its mending,
believe magic just might happen.

Like the touch of fingers dancing,
a massage delights my wet skin.
As the rain falls, washing my face,
I can face the world once again.

Maybe it will rain tomorrow.
I can hope the weather shifts.
I will offer thankful whispers,
as the rain falls, washing my face.
