‘Tis The Rain

Heaven’s tears falling
ever downward,
spacious sprinkling
of transparent damplets,
here, and here, and over there.

soothing showers
almost unwet, yet tasty
discomforting calm,
like a moist massage.

heavy downpour
restoring God’s magnificence,
while cleansing
man’s material inventory.

giving cause for
waders, slickers and the like.

torrents and cascades
rearranging God’s creation,
by His command.

“drenched-to-the bone”
causing shivers and sniffles.

Nature’s water-prank,
using the Great Doors
of Heaven
and the Pail of Providence,

Blessings to a creature of 98̊… H² O.
