    I stepped out of my sandals
    To walk in the damp grass
    Moistened by the rains that
    Appeared before the sunrise;

    I faintly recall the rains as it
    Played a soliloquy of peace
    On my window pane extending
    my rest a little while longer;

    the breeze invaded my slumber,
    gentle in its arrival yet strong
    enough to calm the hot, humid
    air of a typical summer’s night;

    I remember the culmination of
    The gentle breeze dancing with
    The rains provided me a sleep
    Unlike any of nights before;

    I imagined the breeze sweeping
    My fears and sadness onto a
    Stream of raindrops rolling down
    The alleyways of my heart;

    Making way for the peace of the
    Symphony of rain playing a Quiet
    melody on the window Pane as I
    rested in the midst of its song;

    and as the morning arrived I awoke
    to the blessing of a new day with
    thoughts of hope and success on my
    heart as today arrived with a rainbow;

    as I stepped out into the meadow
    I wondered how the world would
    Feel if I took a walk without the
    Covering of man made protection;

    So…

    I stepped out of my sandals
    To walk in the damp grass
    Moistened by the rains that
    Appeared before the sunrise;

    D....

    You have such a distinctive flow
    When I read you
    Ordinary words
    Transform into
    Extra-ordinary shapes
    And sounds
    But always
    There is a breeze
    At the end of your lines and verse

    So good to spend time with you in poetry again friend:cool:
