I Love the Rain

Rain, rain, stay today.
Let me sleep
to your welcoming beat.
The tempo and hum
of notes sounding from
the surfaces your drops meet
methodically soothes my spirit
no matter how ill my temper.
The rhythms play me to sleep
in short order
and I actually nod off
with a smile from my soul
that plays on my lips.
Only to melt with me
into an easy slumber.
What’s not to love?

Poem #11 for National Poetry Month. It’s raining as I write this and my heart is light…as happens with the rain. I get excited when it’s time for bed in the rain. Hope you get an idea of what I’m trying to convey.
