after it rains

i miss the smell of the grass
after it rains
when the earth below is so saturated that it
takes all of my self control
not to kick off my shoes and bury my feet ankle-deep.
when you inhale deeply,
and the moisture fills you up
up up up
till you feel lightheaded with the knowledge
that nature is so much bigger than you.
