Refreshed

If I could choose
it would be gentle rain
that soaks the earth
and kisses my skin
on warm days
when faded desires
need to be refreshed
and parched thoughts
need to be slaked
that the soil of my soul
will once again
bear gifts.

  8. I love this! It felt cleansing, but instead of solely running off and carrying the debris, the water gave life to the deepest roots. This is a poem to keep nearby for soulful rainy days. (And I do love feeling the rain.)
