Kiss the Rain

The recognition
An indescribable sensation

The enlightenment
Of the heart
The awakening
Of the soul

When something long-lost surfaced
My forgotten destination
My fate

Your eyes
Mirrors that have reflected
My soul
In so many different faces

My guiding lights
Through countless lifetimes
Of searching and finding

Your voice
A sound like no other
An echo from the past
Filled me
With the feeling of safety
And soared through me
Like a butterfly storm

The feeling
Of not belonging
Is finally making sense

Every word I’ve written
Every path I’ve chosen
And the song I’ve hummed
During the journey
Has carried me back
To where I belong

All I had to do was listen…

    1. Thank you, Nirvani. I appreciate the compliment coming from you – your poetry never ceases to amaze me. Kiss the Rain isn’t necessarily my “finest” poem, but it has a very special place in my heart. The recognition still leaves me speechless, absolutely wordless. I felt inexplicable familiarity – deep, instant connection with her. There are no words to describe it. It’s a beautiful memory I’ll always cherish.
