Carpe Diem #1034 let the rain kiss you

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today's quote I have titled "let the rain kiss you" ... here in The Netherlands (the land of rain and water) we have high temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius, and the weather forecast thinks we are going to have a heat wave. So this quote gave me some coolness.

Today's quote is by the African-American poet Langston Hughes (1902-1967) a wonderful and gifted poet and author.

Langston Hughes by Carl van Vechten (1936)
This is the quote for your inspiration:

[...] "Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby." [...] Langston Hughes

And this is my inspired haiku:

after the summer heat
raindrops are kissing my naked body
Ah! that coolness
