When I kiss you, I taste the rain. A thunderstorm rolling through the city. There is lightning and the thunder. There is the torrential downpour that accompanies the lights and sounds. It’s a force of nature, sending those of us fleeing to the safety of indoors. The trees drink of the rain. The flowers sway in the wind. Nature relishes in her own fury. When I kiss you, I taste the rain. Of gentle drizzles lightly covering the grass. Of hail and wind. Of tornados, of hurricanes. The flooding of rivers and creeks. The puddles left on the side of the road. When I kiss you, I taste the rain.
