For The Love Of Rain

The languorous skies weigh in
On hazy summer days
Unbroken heat waiting for
The whispers of rain

Sultry nights of too much love
Demanding bodies
Already molten with lust
Find coolness to sleep

The moistness of sweat seems dry
In rising summer heat
Until the first raindrops fall
So joyfully wet

Fragmented summer evaporates
Into autumn shades
As September brings the rain
Rekindling love’s fire

Wet and warm are her kisses
Soft and delicious
Like the shimmering rainbow
Captivating my dreams
