How I love the rain in summer

the Thunder and Lightning

at night

when nature’s awesome power is displayed
for all to see

in a bolt
to pale even the brightest city.

How I love the rain in summer

its boastful roar
beckons a query:
“Must you bellow and exult in your fearsome power,
Old Man”?


How I love the rain in summer

to hear its gentle clatter -
a soft and peaceful music
played upon my bedroom roof
to ease a troubled mind into blissful sleep.

How I love the rain in summer

for the relief it brings
to a parched and thirsty land

Listen

you can hear the earth drink
after a day’s summer swelter.

How I love the rain in summer

filling the air with scent
Fresh, Clean, Renewed
an odor of union
between earth and sky.

How I love the rain in summer

for the gift it truly is
for the memories in my mind
Flowing
like streams of water

Tears

from some fallen god’s eye.
