skipping school on a rainy day

credit: Guweiz

i love the rain
the way each drop
patters on the hard concrete
as i’m walking to school

skipping is more fun,
i decide,
i’d rather soak in
the rain’s lesson

how it reminds me
of my childhood
early evening baths 
and my mother rinsing my hair

i love the rain
the way each drop 
echoes the voice of another
drowning the silence in murmurs

skipping was more fun,
i affirmed,
my shoes are soaked
and my soul is refreshed

how it reminds me
of my childhood
when running in the rain
did not mean running away
