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

November 5

Rainy Day

_____________________________________

Heavy chunky rainclouds rumble

For my bumbershoot I bumble

And raincoat

*

Lightning makes me feel humble

Into my rainboots I stumble

In rainfall

*

This weather makes others grumble

Into the puddles I’ll tumble

In rainstorms

*

During my commute I mumble

Liquid windshield world a jumble

The rainscape

*

Do not let the camera tumble

To catch the fleeting I fumble

A rainbow

Rumbling Relief

_____________________________________

The storms come finally on this hot humid day

Accompanied by thunder and lightning relief in the form of a torrential downpour

Electric disappears with a welcome gust of wind energy renewed with each drop hitting the ground
