Touched By the Rain

She lifts
her smiling face
to the rain
it to sprinkle
her eyes, her cheeks
her open mouth

allows it to fill
her with something
that feels a little
like bliss

The above words were floating through my mind while I took my early morning walk this morning. Rather than resisting the rain, which might be my conditioned way of responding to getting drenched, I became very present with it. I stopped walking and just stood still in the open field--what a simple and beautiful moment.

There are so many little moments like this in our days. We simply need to slow down, get out of our own way and allow ourselves to truly experience them.
