Poetic Journeys #1 - Rain Dance

Poetic Journeys

you’ve been talking all day
trying to get through to me
in the quiet of the evening
i begin to hear you say

that steady voice in the rain
each drop the same
and filled with everything
that lifts me higher

and i throw up my hands and cry
a song into the evening sky
at the tears of rain you shower down
in joy that you and i are one

your words rain down on me
all and one, you speak to me
saying right here is where
i want to be

as the rain runs cool down my uplift face
i know that here is every other place

you tell me right now is the time
that i always waited for
i’d always been knocking at the open door
i walk in and now is when i’ve always been

and i throw up my hands
and cry a song into the evening sky
at the tears of rain you shower down
in joy that you and i are one
