2023 National Poetry Month Celebration: Early Rain

Early Rain


City streets shimmer

Headlights, street lights, building lights

Refract off rivulets. 

Rattles and booms declare the business

Of delivery trucks bringing wares. 

Strings wrapped around barren branches

Twinkle through the drops

Which beat their uneven rhythm

On my umbrella. Car engines purr

As their tires stage whisper cues,

“Watch out. We splash.”

A city lives, rousing from slumber

To a dark and rainy morn.
