Summer Rain

There’s something about
summer rain.
Tropical beaches
and rain showers
twice a day.
Not long ones,
but brief
of skin-drenching showers
that make you sweat
instead of cool.
Steam billowing
from wet bodies
standing in puddles
of humid drops.
Air sticking to skin,
making fish of us all.
where people get caught up
and run
and kiss
under the torrential spray
of liquid romance.
And then rays of sunlight,
clouds shot through
with heavenly light
to dry up the sticky drops.
Left breathless
by the suddenness of it all,
the sheer surprise
of hot kisses
beneath thundering skies
crying hot tears.
