rain finally

we have been doubting
if the drought
would ever out
and rain would reign

I wish i had had the camera as i passed thru downtown. A cloud lingered over Capitol Street like War of the Worlds. It was eerie.

Coming over the bridge, two bolts of lightening shot down to touch either side of a mountain. The two legs of the sky god. I immediately thought of the Ray Bradbury story, The Long Rain.

The rain did not run out
the drought
but every drop was drunk
by the thirsty earth
