spring/rain ~ 1985/age 15

      soft, subdued
      gentle rainfall
      flowing slowly from the sky
      in perfect rhythm

      filling streets with ripples
      mirroring the grey sky;
      dark, serene.

      the pitter-patter-pitter-patter
      of the cool drops
      fills the neighborhood
      children frolic; others take shelter

      the soothing sound
      quietly, to nothing;
      the grey dissapears.
