What joy the feeling

I drew the curtains
Weather was miserable
A sombre grey day

Sad clouds rushed above
Obedient to the wind
Raspy thunder coughed

Then the lightning struck
The clouds wet themselves with fear
And I laughed out loud

So I went outside
Standing there unprotected
Kissed now by the rain

At first on my face
Then my hair and down my neck
Whay joy the feeling

  1. Aww gosh! This is so filled with euphoria and bliss! You make me want to go out in the rain 💖

  2. I know the feeling you evoke in the opening lines, Robin, and I love the lines:
    'Sad clouds rushed above
    Obedient to the wind
    Raspy thunder coughed'.
    I understand that joy of standing in the rain - one of my favourite things.

  3. Few feelings are as glorious as the Nature kissing us all over. What a feeling, indeed!

  4. Oh I love to stand in a warm rain. Once when I was a teen my sister and I took a shampoo bottle and stood in the rain to wash our hair.

  5. Makes you happy to be alive...feeling the rain on your face. This is wonderful Robin!!

  6. embrace the rain. I remember one summer day it was humid. Too hot to horseback ride. Then it rained for hours. We decided to ride in the rain and it was SO much fun. Yes, if it isn't lightening, enjoy it if you can.

  7. I like the "wet themselves with fear" line.
