barefoot in the rain

barefoot in the rain.

tiny splashes,

toes teasing toes,

as the rain lashes,
dancing under moonbeams,

hazy lazy clouds dripping nectar,

cheek to dripping cheek,

your hand in mine,

your eyes sparkling with a fire divine.

dancing barefoot in the rain,

with you, my whole, my own, my life,

dancing with you,

barefoot in the rain,

toes tickle toes,

far from this life’s pain, 

away from the strife,

with you, within you,

I have found renewed life.

the essence of life.

sipping the nectar, sweet,

at times salty,

banishing fretful fears, 

wiping away merciless tears,

sipping the nectar, pungent, at times harsh,

reigniting the complacent mind, 

jarring it out of stasis,

of life, 

this life,

our only life,

dispelling the hopelessness at times felt deep,

hushing the pain, quelling the internal strife,

sipping the nectar, 
feeling it swirl,

awash in the rains of new moments yet to behold,

sipping the nectar, 
warm and enriching, 

shushing the frigidness that comes from being out in the cold.
