Branching asphalt cracks yawn and perspire,
Flowers fold out sunshine pistil tongues,
Silently sip tears from swollen clouds
Watch the sky sigh with mirth.

The leaves of trees crumple and set sail
To the tune of harpstring raindrops,
Of whispers and wishes sent on the wind
By lovers with hands rough from roses.

And, beating, the world quenches lasting thirst
In the pounding marriage of sky and earth,
Filling crevices to make whole what is broken,
Giving sun-chapped souls a chance to breathe.

Until the next release of rain
