Poetry Friday: A Poem Celebrating Rain

The northwest is experiencing a powerful windy and rainy storm today.  In its honor from the book,  A Year Full of Poems by Zaro Well:

From My Window

The waters fall in rectangles
Cities sprout umbrellas
Clear water paints a blurred picture
Tear slide from afternoon branches
Dirt breathes a deep sigh of mud
It’s raining today

That poem inspired me:

rain splatters windshield
swish -swish swish-swish-swish rhythm
syncopated drive

Elaine at Wild Rose Reader is hosting  Poetry Friday. 

Happy Reading.
