I was at the beach this evening.
The wind seemed oddly different.
The air smelled different.
I watched the sun go down the west and the east looked heavy with darker clouds.
It will rain today, I said. The sky kept beckoning acknowledgement.
I drove home with my smoke and kept expecting a shower.
Slowly, ever so slowly came thundering.. lightning.. and then there it was.
A sudden drizzle and the world came alive.
Everyone looked out their window.
For a few seconds I stood there and waited
for the earth to drink
And quench its thirst.
Its so soft and fresh,
The smell of nature bathed in its own beauty.
Everything became lush green.
The fragrance of wet mud feels like heaven.
A very hot cup of hot chocolate and the warmth of your beloved.
Soft raindrops settling on your fingertips.
Cooling and igniting desires at once!
Music begins to play inside my head.
A saxophone and dim lights.
Double bass and a trumpet waiting in the shadows
Ella & Louis sing in a melodious voice…
“Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper I love you!
Birds singing in the sycamore tree…
Dream a little dream of me…
Say Nitey Nite & kiss me
Just hold me tight & tell me you miss me.
While I’m alone & blue as can be,
Dream a little dream of me!
Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longing to linger till dawn dear
Just singing this…
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams, whatever they’d be
You got to make a little promise, promise to me;
You’ll dream… Dream a little dream of me!”
Smiling.. sighing… smiling some more!
The rains are nostalgic.. I wana get soaked in the rain.
I wana hold out my fingertips and feel droplets of water.
I wana hold out my arms and feel liberated.
I wana be held with warmth and feel loved in the rain!
I wana get soaked in the rain!
