Finding the rain inside of me
23/01/13 – Farm Otukaru, Namibia
Have the intention.
The bringer of rain.
Swaying my body.
Recognize it everywhere I look.
My blue toenails like large water drops.
The clouds on the distant horizon.
Feel the heat.
Be grateful for it.
Touch a tree. Climb it.
Touch the earth. Caress it.
Touch water. Play with it.
Throw it into the air to create drops.
Use my fingers, dipped into water
To paint raining clouds on rusted surfaces.
Use a stick to draw a raining cloud
On the dry sandy road.
Notice how I sweat.
Being in touch with my own wetness.
Be grateful for the water inside of me.
Take a cold shower,
A cool, wet relief.
Closing my eyes,
Imagining the cold water as rain on my skin.
Drops start falling outside.
