Yellow and green

on days like these
the rain speaks to my skin
entering its many mouths
rolling across in minute tongues
whispering of daffodil yellow
and the sap's green tide

Ooh, I love that! The "many mouths" and "minutes tongues" of the rain 'speaking to your skin' is an amazing image. xo

Out of the sky, on to the earth, into your skin and words where it belongs.

Lovely rain-drops...and especially like the tiny multiplicity in the image.

Wish it would rain here more.

Anne, it's good to be back, thank you.

Mary, your response makes me chuckle — I suppose goosebumps are a very appropriate response! And thanks for the welcome.

Brenda, I'm glad you liked that. Sometimes I am startled by the images that arrive... like this.

Chico, you honor me. Pero creo que tu estas demasiado generoso. Pienso siempre en imagenes, en colores y luz, en formas, en visiones... estoy sinestista (?), tu sabes... y yo intento a representar estes visiones en palabras... es todo que puedo hacer, intentar. Pero no puedo pintar como ti!

Mermaid... and into our thirsty souls, I hope!

rdl, thanks. I'm pleased you enjoyed it.

Sky, more rain today, which is unusual for here. It just seems to keep coming down. I keep admiring how vivid the colors are in this moody light.

Alan, ah, your kind words always make me smile. Thank you!

Hey, Guile! Good to hear from your corner of the world! Thanks for stopping by.

Lori, those of us in dry climates thirst for rain! Which is part of what this poem is about for me. I sympathize, having been too dried out over many a month.

I like this one, a simple, senual image without explanation. Nice.
