Poem for a Rainy Day


The sky threatens to please me
negotiating clouds,
swollen with black pride
test their waters

raining isn't for everyone
but when I see that cool cleansing ambition
fit to wash the stickiness out of the air
fill holes with puddles
give ducks glee
and let us marvel from safe windowsills
I cannot resist goading it on.

You may laugh at my counterintuitive hopes
Paint me a backdrop like Golgotha
you can resurrect the sun some other day
today must be soaked through

For I have been saving up for this.

Very nice. There is nothing better than watching a good thunderstorm from a porch.
