Rain Please

Shades of cooler gray

Leaning over from the north

Hinting of sweet rain


Swelling thunderclouds

Sweeping too far to the west

Thunder from the east


Finally rain falls

Stirring fragrant aerosols

Thunder rolls closer


Just a stingy sip

Eastward big rain is falling

Thunder drifts southeast


Sailing away now

Slim promise for a rainbow

Ah well, suppertime.
