Prompt Nights – Rain showers my spirit and waters my Soul


This week we are asked to: pen down your deepest feelings regarding the subject of rain.

I awaken on a shivery morning

The rain echoes against the iron roof

Reminding me to nestle longer.

Its cold out, stay and snuggle.

I feel your arms wrapped round me

Holding me close, your warmth

Invigorates and energises me.

The rain relentless all night

The creeks will be rising

Maybe later the water will reach the back fence.

I turn and take you in my arms

Our legs entwine, our hearts awaken

We welcome our intimacy.

The rain sets our minds at ease,

No need to hurry, stay, enjoy.

Later we sit beside the glowing fire

Outside the rain drizzles down

Persistent, like my love for you.
