Cooling Afternoon Rains   Leave a comment

Cooling afternoon rains

fall, yet not consistently,

providing times of downpour

separated by periods without

while flash flood alerts apply

to the local terrain.

—–

Flash floods and flash flood alerts aside,

this rain delights me to my core,

for regarding the fresh air flowing through the open windows

I would not dare (and do not want) to complain

and I know that higher temperatures will follow

soon and the hell of Summer will descend

upon us; such weather I cannot defend.

—–

For now, at least, I have cause to rejoice,

and so I thank God, upon whom I depend,

with the voice

of a pen.
