Winter Rain

The sudden occurrence of a summer storm makes me think of lingering winter rains in the Sonoran desert.

Winter Rain

 

Summer rain has flash

But I like gray.

I like the dullness

Of winter drizzle at play.

 

I like summer rain’s suddenness.

I like its brash rumble and roar,

But a steady, soft beat

Plays a more melodic score.

 

Summer rain strikes and runs,

Cocky and bold,

But a lingering winter rain

Makes my happiness unfold.
