DRINKING ALCOHOL TAUGHT ME HOW TO FLY
THEN IT TOOK AWAY THE SKY

WATER EVERYWHERE???

To Nature she gave birth
In that Creative moment
Of dancing and mirth

Ah! Nature! See?
Just to be...dancing

She
Takes water from the sea
Filters, clears, makes clean
To return in waves of rainy sheen
Down and back to you and me.

Dance...dance in the rain




It is the grandest scheme
Greater than greatest dream--
This process of extraction
Reconditioning
Using again and again

...while dancing in the rain

To dampen
With sweet
Wetness

To nurture
For growing
And sustenance

Reason to dance--wet

It is the milk
Which our Mother
Dispenses

For dancing

For future
Assuredness
Of life's
Continuance.

I remember running and dancing in the rain as a child but haven't done it as an adult...guess I should let my inner child run free and cavort in the rain once in awhile - except we get our rain in the winter and it's a bit chilly!

I love this poem, Steve. It's wonderful.

Brian mentions recycling...
there I go.Or.. I don't know!

This poem seems to have -to me- a double goal and possibly inspiration.

She, being Nature, she, being the one in the rain of that amazing picture...dancing with you and giving you as much as Mother Nature can give.

Love it

You rock Steeeve
:)

Peace
