Surrender

The first few drops fall
We try to walk faster
But we won’t reach shelter in time
No coat, bare arms
The rain gets heavier
The whole sky opens
More rain falls at once than we thought possible
Our clothes cling to our bodies
Our hair drips
I feel the fresh water on my skin
And I let it soak me
It is liberating
I begin to smile
I turn to you
You’re smiling too
All we can do
Is surrender to the rain 
And it is glorious
