Thank You for the Rain

What joy there is in rain! Even in these meager drops of water I rejoice in the middle of such drought. The wind is a welcome relief coming through the screen. This feeling of cool amidst a heatwave is really something to be thankful. This unpredictable weather we are having, as though for one second we are pardoned from what brings us into a standstill.

never too grateful, this rain…
this much coveted water the
ground welcomes home as my skin
ought to perish soon from the
heat, but today it won’t, for
a moment it stays and flourishes
without mindless irritation
followed by hesitation, nor
reckless surrender… how i am
boxed in this hopelessness,
and, yet, from this liquid like
honey from the sky yields me
time to refrain and raise my
hand towards the sky, give
praise, thankful for right now
