Blue skies overshadowed
with grey puffs, a warning
as the sunlight fades

Clouds burst and thunder claps, as
lightning brightens the darkness
and disappears again

Streets become pools
of unswimmable water,
the current carrying the days travels
down a hollow, rushing endlessly
toward the abyss

Water assaults your face
as you fight your umbrella
and the winds that threaten to take you
in a Mary Poppins kind of way

And then it’s gone, leaving
the air heavy with the scent
of rain….
