A Walk in the Rain

evening time
skies grey
rain expected
mood upbeat
shoes laced up
the road beckons,

the trees cheer
the breeze intoxicating
phone in pocket
music in the ears
i step out
and so do
the raindrops,

i smile
and the clouds
cheeringly thunder
i continue
and so does
the rain,

and in those moments
we complete
each other
as it seeps through
and beyond
all my masks
reminding me
once again
of the spirit
of life,

and i walk
drenched
beyond recognition
seemingly devoid
of any sanity
but so in tune
with my heart
and the rhythm
of those falling
raindrops.
