Slipping Under, Slipping Away

How warm water feels on rainy days
like stepping into the dirtiest, best bath you've ever taken
how gorgeous to swim through
closing my eyes and slipping under
the simple perfection of water

a drizzling day
in June
I sit on the porch
listen, feel, watch
the gorgeous sprinkling of rain
the breeze, the birds, the gentle patter

If only...
to swim in the rain once more
If only...
A pool? A lake? A pond?
Any would do.
If only...
A swim suit or a dress
when you care less
what you do or how you look
it all fades away
slipping under
the beauty of the storm
