                 Unceasing rain!
night long hammeringly
until you blow by me --

                 sometimes the sky
brightens close to land but not
                 for long
enough to go out! I’m awash

                        in rain! Across
the gulch & onto the green
                 roof, I can't
hear myself! Your water

                 has filled the pond
beyond its banks to the tree
                 trunks, wading
for life.

                 Water. Water!
