Sometimes the rain

Sometimes the rain clings
To the earth and
Caresses it with
Its rivulets

Tonight’s wasn’t like that
The torrents collapsed with
Such violence that
The droplets bounced off
The pavement and
Scattered like
Lighting bugs
In my headlights

    1. Natalie, thanks for your visit and your comment. It was a spectacular downpour. Interestingly enough, it began while I was at a poetry reading by Martin Espada (if you have not read his work, do).
