Let It Rain, Let It Rain

    I woke up and it was raining (not very hard, but it was raining)! I love rain! I don't care what kind of activities or outings that it has ruined, rain will always be my very favorite weather. Why? I think it's because rain is connected to so many great things that make me happy: Warm apple cider, fleece blankets, gripping novels, fuzzy socks pitter-patter on the roof, lightening and thunder (LOVE It!), mud, clean moist air, bare feet, etc...

    I woke my sister up at 7:00. "It's raining. Let's go take pictures."
   And, because she's just a great spontaneous, fun-loving person, she got up, got dressed and joined me on the lawn. What a blast we had. She had work today (she works in the same bakery I used to work at) so our fun was cut short ... but it was great while it lasted


    I wrote a poem a year ago today, called Let it Rain. I really like it, even though it's definitely not Shakespeare. It is really applicable to my situation at the moment, what with College and Home so different and my wanting to remain in the world, but not of the world. 
    Here are the stanzas one by one.

Let it rain, let it rain
Protect me from the worldly bane
Let it splash
Let it soak
Wash from me the carnal stain

Let it rain, let it rain
Remove desires foolish, vain
Let it pelt
Let it pour
Help me forget this life’s inane

Let it rain, let it rain
Keep me from the crushing pain
Let it drip
Let it drench
Hold me forever in the rain

    Thank you for sharing this morning with me Sis (and little brother and sister)! I love you all.
