Lalo Kikiriki

loving the rain

the rain loves you
it wants you to lie in the bed
it gives you that
pure gray light to read by,
under the quilt,
until it can push your head
back onto the pillow
and love you some more...
it whispers: no weeding today
no walk to the market
no planting tulip bulbs
no painting in plein air –
the rain loves you
back to sleep;
you can hate yourself later
for wasting half your day,
loving the rain

  1. I love this. I've had so many days like this - rain or not. It speaks to my heart and mind, sometimes telling me that getting out of bed can wait until later. YAY!
