Sleeping In The Rain

No 1 – ‘The Rain’ series



I fell asleep in the rain,

And my fears washed away,

Like drops in the ocean,

And a veil of sea spray,

I was cleansed in the languor,

Of its molten lagoon,

Drowning in the freedom,

Of a liquescent cocoon,

When I opened my eyes,

And I saw things anew,

I knew who’d be waiting,

I knew it was you.

  1. The rhythm of this is perfect, darling. JUST perfect. And the words so lovely. The whole thing is wonderful, but this part: was cleansed in the languor,/Of its molten lagoon,/Drowning in the freedom,/Of a liquescent cocoon, — just speaking it aloud, with all those Ls and O sounds, followed by the fricative cocoon — it’s like swishing the best wine around your mouth. You are getting really good at this.
