Summer Rain


A freshness in the air
the smell of summer rain
the sound of thunder
and ever darkening skies
soon it will come
falling from the clouds
in a mad rush
tearing through the boughs
of the trees
flowing through the gutters
and down the rain chain
straight into the mouth
of the thirsty fish
bouncing off
the fronds of the fern
and soaking into
our parched earth
