I came back from Jeju Island..

Jeju Island in South Korea

For the first time, I heard

The sounds of the flat, foresty path.

I also walked through the trailless parts of the forest,

All the while getting rained on,

Without a word…I just met the rain.

I became so thoroughly soaked that even when the rain stopped,

I was able to harness that moisture into my skin.

I was also able to harness the tears that threatened to overwhelm me in the past.

I feel like I can now withstand the dryness of LA’s perpetual drought.

Even hearing music about the rain,

Is enough to sustain me so I don’t miss it.
