The Sky

I stepped outside today
Just to feel the grass
On the bottoms of my feet.
The air was thick and heavy
Clouds above in shades of gray,
With blinding light pouring
Through the gaps in spaces.
Deep breath in-
It smelled like storm,
One of my most favorite smells.
The sky opened before me,
And dripped its tender kisses
Across my nose and over
My shoulders, drenching me
In soft serenity
And for once today,
I felt at ease with myself
And it was okay that
I am simply me.
I was the sky.
