These, are memories of a childhood rainstorm, memories of a distant past.

The rain came down softly,
landing on my hair and eyelashes,
then rolling down my face and neck. 
Yellow raincoat.
Purple boots.
I ran. 
Throwing my hands up in the hair,
I laughed. 
The rain was streaming along next to the curb;
and jumping up and down,
I ran through the puddles,
splashing mud on my face.
The air was fresh and cool.
The breeze,
soft as it touched my skin. 


So often, I had jumped in the puddles,
splashing water all over my clothes.
So often, I had run, chasing the water as it flowed,
like a river, along the edge of the street.
So often, I had placed a stick in the flowing waters
and watched it disappear on its long journey.
So often, I had been upset a the sight of
so many worms lying dead on the concrete. 

These,
are memories of a childhood rainstorm, 
memories of a distant past. 


 
I was out taking a walk today, and it was raining and immediately these memories came flooding back to me and this poem came to my head. so yeah, have a nice day.

    I could just feel the vibrating and longing energy. This is beautiful. I could feel the curiosity and fascination too. Fascinated by the simplest things as children, and yet the most memorable.
