In honor of the rain

Danae Moore

I LOVE the rain. The feeling of it on my face; the sound of the rain on the roof; the sweet smell in the air. It gives us the perfect excuse to snuggle up inside our homes with a good book and revel in an introspective, quiet mood. We are entering the yin months — a time of darkness, cold weather, slowing down and hibernation — a time when we naturally need more rest, sleep, and quiet time. Even though the rain won't last with us in the Bay Area beyond tonight, it's a sweet reminder to begin making space for the natural, seasonal transition from yang to yin.

So today, two short and sweet poems in honor of the rain:

April Rain Song
By Langston Hughes

Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.

First Winter Rain
By Matsuo Basho

First winter rain—
even the monkey
seems to want a raincoat.

That second one always makes me laugh :)
