The February rains come down,
light weight upon the land
bringing sparkle, refreshment
needed this season. The clarity
in the air juxtaposes against
the turn of season towards Spring
as the feelings and signs awaken
the sleeper in me, saying arise.
Yield I must to the rhythm of earth,
desiring an open heart to mercy
for others. This rain refreshes
and aids the call to live; be swift
my mind and intellect,
gain the harmony of good weather,
a gift for us, this returning and renewal.
