Slow Rain

Just back from lunch with my wife.
Getting back to work on a very rainy day.
the sound of it off the roof,
through the closed window beside me
Slow rain, like it is supposed to be
Spring in this area, no torrent,
not crack of lightening, thunder
soft, gently slow rain, flowers and shrubs
enjoying the feeding, especially the blooms
the rhododendron, alive, vivid color
pink, rose-like color, saturated, quite literally
all of 48 degrees, Fahrenheit, midday
Slow rain, low clouds
quite in the yard, drizzle of rain
falling, falling, down
