The first cool drop of water
Released from the skyward mist
On an autumn afternoon
Traverses my sweaty brow
A welcome kiss of beauty

That small elegant raindrop
With fervent haste foreshadows
A wild tempest soon to come
Quenching the earth of its thirst
After long summer months

The drop rivulets across
The surface of my forehead
And I gaze into the heavens
Each subsequent water drop
Is another baptism

The first stanza is the strongest in my opinion and my favorite and I really like how you end the last stanza.  Beautiful poem.

I agree with the previous comment.  Not only can the reader feel the raindrops, but also emotionally feel the release and freedom that sometimes (or often) comes with rain.
