poetic rain and spoonfuls of honey

 rain.
not the sad sort
the poetic sort of rain
that makes you want to call your sisters to go dance together under it
and we run out of the door--no we don't put shoes and coats on first ,that would ruin the magic
we giggle in excitement fleeting out our warm house in our sundresses--for it was warmer this morning and papai did say it would get cold but we didn't listen
or is it because we like watering the flowers on our dresses?
no don't play music for us
the raindrops make their own music and our laughter bubbles to the notes
its enough its simple its perfect
holding hands skipping in circles barefoot on wet grass.
yes we do love the simple life
then vovo calls us back in because he doesn't want us to catch a cold
then he'd have to make us swallow spoonfuls of honey.

 

papai means dad in Portuguese 
vovo means grandpa in Portuguese. 
my mom is Brazilian and she taught us Portuguese so that's we don't say the names in english.

    Replying: I *totally* get it. Sometimes I'm on a roll, and then I don't write for days. Before I joined WTW, I wrote once a week or usually even less. Also, the first piece I posted today I wrote last night while I couldn't sleep (see message box), so there's that..

    Replying: Haha cool! My town is about 8,000 ppl I think, and going "into town" means driving 15-25 minutes to one of two cities (both of which aren't that much bigger).

    It makes me wish it would rain, even though I generally don't like the rain. But sometimes I want to just stand in it with no worries. Maybe that's the part of me that's already dying in the California heat talking lol.

    This piece is so sweet, like a breath of fresh air, of petrichor.

    I love the imagery here; it's very beautiful and makes me think of lovely rainy days. I also like how you show the love in your family.
