365 Snap Shots of Life: Day 108



Mojave Desert  Showers

I like the sound of rain,
it makes me feel like dancin’,
Sube y Baja (Up and down),
Pa’ riba pa’bajo (Side to side),
Ooh yeah, the rain it makes me dance inside,
saturates my soul,
fills me with delight.
Agua santa, pura y ( Holy water, clean and pure),
Me llena de esperanza (I’m alive with hope),
Se me alegra el Corazon (My heart has found the cure).
The rain drops: Diamonds from heaven,
out in this desolation,
washes over and refreshes
lonely, lowly ,anguished souls.
Diamonds falling from the sky:
Psshh, psshh,psshh,
Sshhm sshh, sshh,
Trssh, trssh, trrrssh,
Music to my ears-
makes me feel like singin’,
songs of sheer delight.
The sound of rain,
moves me in thanksgivin’,
to the one who sent me diamonds from the sky.

  1. Having lived in Brazil where it poured 6-12 inches daily, I love rain and the sound of it. More than that, I love being saturated by it. Your line, “it saturates my soul fills me with delight” is right on. Loved this post! 😀 Your blogs are always a delight to read. I love coming here. 🙂


    1. Once again I’m humbled by the fact that what I do here keeps my readers coming back. By the way, I’m part Brazilian and I LOVED the parts I visited back in 1993. Thanks again for your lovely words of encouragement 🙂 ! My readers ROCK!!!!
