If, then after, It Rains - May 28, 2022

where I live

thunderstorms usually arrive

to a mountain’s detour


where clouds are spun

into a collar that wraps

to see the shiny faces

of dripping leaves

and the air

so clean and fresh


I thought of a prayer

spoken through tears

that might greet Him


opening His front door
