Miz Quickly’s Day 24: Like Rain

A Conversation with Weather-Beaten Trees

tell me when it rains like
god almighty doing the flood thing again

rain in moon-big-drops plummeting
from his out-stretched hand

on my potted geraniums
and the parsley and dill

maybe he’ll rain in slow syllables
and narrate his catastrophes

as if he were speaking to
the primitive ages.

    1. I must thank Mr Misky for that line of thought. He was grumbling about eco-warriors sending us back to the stone age. Something about it being thrust down our throats.

  4. Wowza! I can hear/feel those moon-sized drops, and feel/hear those slow-rain syllables.
