I was

A small child

I’d watch the rain

Every time it fell

In full awe of the show

Wondering when it would stop

Excited to have big puddles

Stayed on the porch until it was safe

Took off my socks and shoes and went dancing

the equalizer


Barely three feet tall

Only adults to play with

Blow up a balloon
