A Sudden Torrent

Like the gate of heaven
opening on the first day of the flood
a sudden torrent fell today
momentary as it was
a sudden torrent fell today
the air changed, the outdoors
reverberating, the sound of the rain
crashing on the driveway, off the buildings
echoing in the yard, through the windows
damp followed, as the sun tried to shine
the puddles receded
and the air changed again
for another shower is coming
and I know not when it will fall
