    Spain in Rain Falls

    There’s something different
    About the rain in Spain
    And being an English man
    And well versed in rainfall
    I should know a thing or two
    About rain

    It still falls horizontal ( horizontal rain ? !!! ? ) LOL
    Occasionally with a side to side wiggle
    But it seems to land with a different splatter
    And the ringlet pools in puddles
    Seem to matter

    The thrumping, drumming trickles and rivers
    Have an alternate way
    Of running down the road side gutters
    And there is a coastal tinkle
    In expanses formed by the space of sea
    So close to the sky grey

    People do not rush in the rain
    They understand this brief refreshment
    And draw it in through sun-baked pores
    Drink it in on dry parched throats
    Many weeks may pass before its cool embellishment
    Returns to break the dusty heat

    Its almost as if you can hear the dry ground soaking
    Drinking, shlurping, on the straws of greedy roots
    And every leaf is a green extended tongue
    With closed eyes savours the feel of water
    As it plinkers and splotters
    Leaping in sprays off their wet leafy diving boards

    And the mood seems slowed, patient, waiting
    And every where you go there is a warm glow of unspoken appreciating
    Smiling; the clouds do not feel heavy
    And the sky still reflects its blue
    And the rain is there just reminding you
    Of the long days of desiccant sun yet to come

    The all is basking, washing under arm nooks and niches
    Where the dusty days have gathered
    Everything is stretching revitalized as if from a weary sleep
    Shaking and rattling with incessant drips and drops
    Sounds like laughter echoed from a thousand swimming pools
    Repeated by every blade of grass
    Even ones eyes are relieved from straining
    The blanket droplet laden cotton sky
    Hangs a shade of diffuse balm on ones retina
    Instead of squinting in sunglass bright glaring
    Can see the deeper hues of dampened colour
    Crisp, clean pervades
    With a slow unencumbered sense of peace

    Yes, there is something different
    In the rain, in Spain
    Something expansive, more spiritually deliberative
    And being an Englishman hailing from that bleak raining land
    Am well versed in all the aspects of water-fall
    I should know a thing or two
    About rain
