Rainy Day This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Your senses go on high alert
When the cool raindrops dance
On your bare skin
Goosebumps come out
To watch their fluid movement

Each droplet tramples the grass
Creating a symphony of pitter patter
Nature's music

The petrichor smell
Brings fantasies
Of places you have yet to see
Visions of lost waterfalls
And the expansive sea

Water kisses your lips
A thousand brief pecks
Each droplet slides away
Leaving a coolness in its wake

Thousands of stars
Fall from the sky
Their glittering shapes rush down
Excited to be embraced by
Their mother Nature
She hugs them tight
Right into the ground

You are teetering at the edge of awareness
Water logs your thoughts
Tucking them away
For a moment of relaxation
Once all the rain has fallen
They will be overwhelmed
Taking in the subtle glory
Of our humble earth
