a welcome visitor,
crackling like fire outside the window,
riding on the back of wind
and filling old tins,
sweeps away the stings of yesterday.
sets the past aflame--
Extinguishing the night
drowning bird calls and cricket chirps,
barking dogs and caterwauling cats;
listening in the gloom
to thunder kiss the room,
drinking in the
rhythm of the rain.
