Dancing In The Rain

The torrential rains that fall outside

try to mimic my tears

But I have no more tears to cry-

the first in many years


I go outside and the raindrops 

lick my cheeks where my tears once were

And it starts to bring joy to me 

A small feeling starts to stir


I realized I never got to dance in the rain

"Because you will catch cold!"

I stood out looking up to the sky with a smile

And I giggled without a thought to the scold


Well, I looked like a wet animal

and that I had just had a shower

But I'll tell you that by dancing

in the rain I had taken back more power

    Beautiful Christina!
    Keep on dancing in the rain my lady
    and the power will be yours each day!
    It reminds me of ...
    “Dancing in the Rain”...a Gene Kelly movie.
    My mother loves it...and so do I!

              RAIN DANCE ~ WOW ~ It's the Native American in you !

              Who has danced the solemn Rain Dance ?
              Called on Pluvius in a Rain Trance
              Who has touched the clouds and made them rain ?
              Shed you clothes ~ anticipation
              Join in dance ~ precipitation
              Fragrant showers will come again !

              Loved your RAIN DANCE ~ Christina ~ you sound so Happy ~ and you make all of us

                You write about a favourite way of mine to shake off dark moods - go dance in the rain - or in the snow as I once did and loved it. A charming read on taking back power.

                • Christina8

                  Thank you so much Fay! I really appreciate your reading my poem and your thoughts on it! And the snow will be here soon too! 🙂 Thanks again!
