rain buddies

“good morning, rain buddy.” 

what a befitting address to me by a friend! yes, i am a loyal ally of this phenomenon.
yesterday, i again had the good luck of enjoying the rain, but i was not running.
in the middle of my preparing our  lunch, i went out of our house upon hearing the heavy downpour. i excitedly urged my three sons to join me, but only one shadow followed me. it was lancelot.

a certified “rain buddy” himself, i kind of expected him to be my lone companion.

for my twins, gone were the days when they would be rejoicing just by hearing “BOOM!” then the rumblings of the thunder. i realized, they had outgrown it that fast. unlike me. 
the rain will always be a protective blanket for me when i feel low. its cool caress on my skin will always calm my tensed nerves. its neutralizing ability to counterbalance any negative emotions that are cooped up inside me gives me relief. its generosity in providing me an exclusive pathway toward an escape from the present brings me back to those days of innocence. 
watching my son frolicking in the rain elicited a smile from me. he was very “ME” when i was his age. rain time would always be playtime. nothing and no one could stop me. 

ah! how can i detach myself from the rain if it allows me free tastes of perfect bliss and serenity?
