The rythm of rain

the water pounds on the asphalt like a drummer to a drum 
and the wind blows in a mobius pitch whistling tunes through its hum 

the tin can joins in the whimsical that we lovingly call rain 
and the rooftop offers dancing lessons like the taps on the window pane 

the trees shake like maracas when the wind starts to sway 
and the tires of a car plays symbols as it drives the other way 

thunder cues the lighting flash as it rolls across the sky 
but if i could hear one last song i would listen to the rain before i die 

the soothing peace, that inner sense that is brought on by the rain 
releases tension and calms my spirit and helps to keep me sane

    The old drummer has a fascinating beat. Great description! When the orchestra gets going we can dance John, nothing I'd like to do better in the deluge!

    The RAIN for you.... the OCEAN SOUNDS for me..I especially like the personifications of your tropical storm-like write, John. Love the rooftop offering dancing lessons like the taps on a window pane! Juicy good! Have u ever watched War and Remembrance? This reminds me of the part where Jastro looks up to the golden moon one last time b4 climbing the stairs to the "disinfection shower"..I think I would like my last song to be the first cricket songs of spring. :) Gwendolen
