An Adjective for a Rainy Day

in

Silvery droplets fell.
No umbrella, no raincoat,
wasn't prepared,
and didn't care.

Raising both hands,
with upturned palms,
I hummed.
Rain, rain go away,
come again another day.
 
When it continued,
pelting down,
I smiled.

People shivered beneath shelter,
people hurried past,
all trying to keep dry.

But there wasn't this need.
The taste of rain on skin,
the music of thundering clouds,
and the sensuous caresses of the wind.

Ah, there isn't a need to resist Nature.
