Rain

Updated: Jan 21, 2019

Into each life

a few drops

must fall impatient

upon window

or roof


O the tiny worlds

tucked inside

each sphere

imperfect

mixed geochemical


how predictable you are

first heavy then heavier

within the rainbands

and after

the unbearable beauty


of this fine soil

of this scented Earth
