bucket water transformed
after precious rainfall.
clear reflection as sun sets
cloud cover
grays changing
twilight whispers magic
secrets.

chills of future weather
refresh the dried tree limbs,
earth soaks slowly sipping
replenishment
awakening memories
of ages past.

i know the song of rain.
sisters dance.
from eastern slopes
the unexpected
celebrates prayers.

will i walk with rain
again
tomorrow?
 

(poem2)

thunder crossed my forehead
clouds burst dumping waterfalls
of rain
every thing stopped
breath caught
instant stillness
as lightening
illuminated the sky.

all was dark
silent
and then
pouring rain
pounded upon thirsty earth
and souls
a dance of a million drops.

water rushing through tree limbs
downpour in canyons
rabbits running for cover
dogs cowered from
the intensity of
thunder more
lightening
darkness
a breath
thunder
crossed
my forehead.
