Free Rain Shine

The rain is falling,
flowing, swirling,
puddling, pooling,
ruling the land.
Brilliant greens shine,
making up for the lost sun.
Verdant suburban lawns,
wild in their natural state.
Raindrops dance off of
over-passes,
cannon-balling into pools.
Makeshift streams
flow down sidewalks,
carrying tulip petals
like ships,
floating lazily
to whatever end
may find them.
I water myself
before heading in-doors,
natural
for the moment.

  2. Rain is good. I loved your lines "I water myself before going indoors" Enjoyed the visit.

  5. Jae, Deborah. oldegg, Kim, Meryl, thanks. It's not raining here for the first time in what seems like weeks. It seems odd to see the sun.

  6. I've been cursing the rain all week, but this makes it seem alright.
