For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain. —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

You sent abundant rain, O God, to refresh the weary land. Psalm 68:9



Let it rain.
Let the rivers take my pain and slake my thirst
for more than this.

Let it rain.
Let my veins run with ink and trace roadmaps
to Your heart.

Let it rain.
Joyful breeze and faded song, the longing
of my skin for silence.

Let it rain.
Let me be filled with more than ache and less
than all; be still.

Let it rain.
Until I am mud
and puddle



Day 8 for Grace’s 28 Days of Self Love Challenge.
Mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful are borrowed from my favorite, E.E. Cummings.
