Today, it rained.

and it wasn't the harsh, cold rain

of winter,

it was brisk,

there was a hint of warmth in the air

and it smelled like Earth.

I didn't mind being outside

under the sky and clouds,

I didn't mind getting my hair

wet and


It was cool and soft,

and I could feel new life beneath my feet.

A darkened day by spring showers,

but a sweet smelling

gentle touching precursor to

the hazy summer ahead.


In contrast,

there you are down in Florida,

soaking up rays,

getting tan…


Piña colada frozen heaven

averaging 80 degrees per day…


Think of me while the sun

smiles on you,

at first, I was glad

it rained today.
