This Rain Shoulda Been Snow

____________________________________________________________________________________________

This rain shoulda been snow

It’s December 20

But it’s sixty degrees

It is disconcerting

I worry for the trees

*

This rain shoulda been snow

The creeks rise once again

noisily tumbling

behind the town’s facade

groaning grumbling

*

this rain shoulda been snow

feet accumulating

softly and silently

muting society –

the rains acts violently

*

This rain shoulda been snow

hoping winter gets cold

that the cold hard rains stop

and the snow starts at last

Please send flake over drop
