Rain

rainy day

Crack of thunder, flash

of lightening.

Rain came off of the roof

in sheets, a waterfall

turning the red dirt into

a lake lapping at the

Virginia creeper,

making puddles on the

brick path and

the floor inside my door.

 

The thunder rumbles

away. The sky yellow and

white, the leaves wet and

shiney – rain still falling

water running down the

street.
