all of the windows are open
while the downpour begins
filling the apartment with
the sound of water
rushing past the limbs and
leaves of trees
as a family we exclaim
it’s raining and it’s
really coming down now
pausing for a moment in the
gray sunlight to watch the
trees shiver and grow vibrant as
dead skin is shed and falls
to the earth while the clouds move
overhead omnisciently
and for a brief moment life
is interrupted by water by
the chirping of birds by
puddles we will drink from
in the days to come
