Can you distinguish
Each rain drop?
Let the sounds soak
Into your bones.
Can you feel the vibrations
Of the raindrops?
Let the wetness
Wash over you.
Try to relax
With the massage?
Rain drops put me
Into a meditative state.
Rain drops are like a drum
That focuses thoughts.
Rain drops draw me deeper
And deeper within myself.
I remember the joy
Of swimming in the rain!

Sitting and listening to rain falling is a very enjoyable pastime
for me. Listening to the raindrops puts me into a meditative
state. Watching a storm approach across the valley or
horizon is exciting to me. It takes me deeper into thoughts
within my mind. It brings memories back to become
fresh and hot much like a hot flash.
To walk in the rain or just lie out on the dock and let the
raindrops provide the cleansing shower to wash all the bad
feelings away are magical moments. These are the
precious jewels never to be sold.
