Return of the Rain

IMG_2915

The rain came back

after weeks of impossibly

blue skies.

We are deluged.

Water glazes the sidewalks,

deep mirrors

reflecting roiling  gray

heavens.

Pools engulf our feet

even when we walk

on ballerina-toes.

Gutters heavily hum.

Cars zloosh and sploosh

and thrum.

It’s far easier to let your heart soar

in buttercup-bright days;

but it is in the rain

that green, new life is

nourished.
