Águas de Março

Águas de Março

A Poem by Mrudula Rani
"

March rains are called "Águas de Março" in Brasil

"
The cool breeze and pure moisture,
from the vast bule above,
A blessing of Mother Nature.
First drops of rain like dew drops on my lips,
Softly reaching my soul, like lover's kiss.

As it pours down,
Runs in microstreams on my skin,
Slowly evaporating warmth from frame.
As the heavy rain drenches me,
from head to toes,
Wrapped in water logged and tranparent Clothing,
Under the open skies,I feel being in a bath!

Slushing through the rivers of brown,
That's gaining ebb and flow on the slopes of town,
Lapping at the sidewalks,and lamp posts,
The force of the flow a gentle massage between my toes
I become part of the elements of nature
As the dry leaves and candy wrappers swimming in circles
Adrift to the unknown; the freedom of joy!
Rains of march whash away,
the grimes of yesterdays.
Sun makes another sheepish attempt to start the day!

Maravilhoso! It is a wonder to watch the rain, to feel it covering you, drenching body and soul. But it is even more vibrant to realize the rain is not something other, we are a part of it, nature is alive in us and we are connected deeply to all that lives and moves around us. So powerful! Adorei o título ... Estou tentando aprender português ... devagar!

The way that you wrote/crafted these words, made me feel as if I was standing beside you watching those dry leaves and candy wrappers do their little circular dance..........Neville

Only the guys I admire and adore!
It Rains here the whole year round. So we sort of take it for granted.
But rain definitely is life in some parts of the world.
You can see why people celebrate it.
But at the moment, I'm building an Igloo. It's not going well. lol
