Rain, Rain ...

I LOVE the rain! It doesn't matter how long I live in California, my veins still flow with rainwater and starbucks. I'm a little disapointed in my californian children who spent 5 min outside and begged to be let back in for a hot bath and hot cocoa. Wimps! Seriously though, as much as I love a good rain drenching, I do enjoy a cozy house and some nice hot marshmellow flecked chocolate!


cloud blackened water
reflected the storm
assaulted by wind
and I, ocean born
was peppered by rain bullets
where I stood - torn
by the love of it's fury
and a love to be warm


and for even more poetry ...

The reason the kids are "wimps" is because they get hot cocoa EVERY time they go out in the rain! So... of COURSE they are going to want to hurry up and get inside...
