First Rain

We had a big rainstorm sweeping across us all this morning. It was delicious. Ever since I was young I have loved the sound of rain if nothing else. In a book I created in kindergarden I had wrote that one of my favorite sounds was "rainwater going down the street drains."

I even like biking in the rain, all my gear on the sounds and smells of splashing water. Puts a smile on my face just thinking about it.

I like to ride in the rain
my bike tires sending up their own shower
a muddy streak on my back
glasses fogged
drips down my cheek
as i ride into the rain
the smell of ozone on the pavement
my torso warm
and dry

A poem I wrote to win a gortex jacket recently (I'm not sure anyone else submitted anything).

The picture is from inside Ramblas one of my favorite dinner AND brunch places of late.
