You lie there on your bed
So lovely and so bored
Waiting for it to clear
Like you did yesterday, and the day before
Waiting for the world to dry
For the gray clouds to break
For an infusion of sunlight, and for a rainbow, too.
It’s not going to happen today, you know,
It will keep on raining, raining, raining
Raining as if it’s a Biblical flood,
Raining as if it’s the end of the world.
Grab my hand and let’s run out!
Let’s stroll down the glassy streets
Let’s listen to the music of the wind and leaves
Let’s splash through the puddles
Let’s forget our umbrella
Let’s dance, let’s hug, let’s hold hands in the rain
Let’s not be afraid of getting wet,
Let’s not be afraid of pneumonia
(If we end up in hospital,
We’ll ask them to put us in the same bed)
Let’s be for a while
Wild like the wind, hectic like the rain,
Let’s be less than comfortable
More than rational,
Let’s shiver, let’s be afraid
Of the thunder and the lightning
For how can we appreciate the warmth,
The softness of our comfortable beds
The quietness of our lives
If we don’t shiver a little before
In the thunder and the cold?

Words can blush, you know.
“let’s be less than comfortable, more than rationale” – I love this!
I love this. How can you ever appreciate bliss without experiencing uncomfortableness?
Quite so! How can one appreciate the comfort of one’s bed without suffering first the wooden indifference of a lonely park bench!

reminds me of my first romance…hmmmm nostalgia
Ah, you’re making me curious. Won’t you tell us more?
I was a little over 14 and madly in love yet obsessed with my mother’s constant warning about boys. His name was Harry, he was such a stubborn boy. He got off to things such as this and one evening we were caught in the rain. It rained ceaselessly and it got cold, bitter cold, neither of us had brought a jacket or worn anything warm. I was getting worried of catching a cold or getting flu, the feeling cannot be admired and I think I get a little uglier when I get sick. He, on the hand was adamant and didn’t seem perturbed by the devilish rain. We found somewhere to shade and he held me only as a lover would to keep me from freezing. I blamed him for being caught in the rain and he kept quiet all the while breathing warm air on the back of my neck. I was getting worried sick of what my mother would say when if I went back to her dripping wet with shrunk hair and her least favourite boy on my tail. In a moment of madness Harry said we should kiss in the rain. I told him he was jocking and he just stood there grinning saying that it would be just like in music videos. Before I could say no, which was Just at my throat he had pulled me into the rains. (Drum rolls) less than two minutes with numb lips and almost stiff bodies and then the heavens decided we should go home. A hailstorm ensued, it really battered us, especially me with my award winning forehead, we ran for it. Needless to say I got punished and sent off to boarding school the next year – Harry got really sick (justice, am I right?) I saw him as often as î could. So not technically dancing in the rain, I still remember it fondly 🙂
Lovely and will love to try before standing in safer place 🙂
Do try, without an umbrella. 🙂
Sure and thanks for replying 🙂

Enjoyed this Vincent. Its raining here today. Now all I need is someone to get comfortable with. Haha. Maybe next year. XD
Just stop a complete stranger on the street, someone you like. Worked for me. 🙂
Sounds like a conversation I just had with a coworker. We finally got a little rain here in California. It’s broken up now, and the sun has come out, and it’s beautiful. My coworker commented that she wished the weather could be like this all the time. I told her I agree, except… Except without any variety, we’d have nothing to compare it to, and less reason for appreciation. Yes, Vincent. One must get a little uncomfortable to realize the beauty of what they have.
