RAIN

Posted for dversepoets

TO earth she gave birth
in creative moment
of dance, mirth

ah! nature. see?
 just to be...

dancing
she
pulls water from sea

clears, cleans
returns those waves 
as rainy sheen
back to you and me.

let us dance...
dance in the rain




the grandest scheme

greater 
than greatest dream--

process of extraction
 reconditioning

using again and again
...while we
dancing in the rain

dampening
with sweet
wetness

nurturing growth
providing sustenance

reasons to dance--

wet...dense
is the milk
mother cloud
dispenses

assuring
future dance

insuring
life's
continuance.

    Gentle strokes and playful pizzicatos.

  9. This reminds me of childhood days, running joyfully in the rain
    ( unless mother called us in when thunder and lightning began ) or wonderful visits to Caribbean islands with special people and romantic rainy night dances that ended with a swim in an azure sea.

  15. LADY NYO:
    As I look back over (many MANY!!!) years, I cannot recall any summer which was not as hot as this. Of course, I cannot recal LOTS of things! LOL!

    RNSANE:
    I like to hear of those Caribbean visits, and that azure sea-swimming.

    Sometime write a blog about those memories: and dancing in the rain—grin!

    HEDGEWITCH:
    Immersion! I love to be immersed in anything.
    Sorry about the weather. Ours is typical for summer: early morning cool. Morning hot, nap, afternoon rain, nap, little cooler (less hot!), nap, dinner and blog, and it's bedtime! (Actually, a lot more goes on here—grin!

  20. Beautiful expression of our most basic connection and joy that we we seem to so often neglect. Without the whimsy of the dance life sure gets tiresome. Loved the write and sentiment! ~ Rose

  21. As humans we have been charged with ensuring these cycles continue, to keep the rain falling, running its course to the ocean, and keeping us dancing in drops that won't burn! Thought this was wonderful! Thank you :)

  22. Why do we attribute the feminine gender to nature? Okay, you be good now. I am going into hiatus from the blogs as I embark on a very important project. I shall return soon and you will know when that is because you will be the first blog I will visit and leave a comment, okay? Behave yourself. Stay away from thunderstorms.

    Your own poem triggered my memory of a cat, the rain, and me. Explained on your blog's comments. Thanks for your kind words.

    When you return I will explain why we call nature “Mother”. But I think you already know. The chicken came first, right?--grin!
