Conversations With Rain

Sometimes I like to walk in you,
to let you run down my back, 
but today the birds have shamed 
me as I sit observing you, 
winter's gift, through my window 
while wrens frolic in your drops 
as if it were the cream of summer, 
and I remonstrate with you,
be a little less intense, take a break,
so I can venture with you,
so far you haven't heard my plea,
and here I sit, immobile, waiting
for you to abate.

  1. I used to enjoy walking in a summer rain. (Not in a winter rain, though.)

  2. I always wonder if birds tire of being wet, when rains continue for extended periods of time. At first glance it doesn’t seem to faze them one bit!
