Rains Have Arrived

Rain drops tumble from cloud flasks
leapfrogging across open spaces
Longing to be the first to cartwheel
across the parking lots and reach
the dried grasses beyond

Rivulets race down roofs
splashing into gutters
sliding down drainpipes
puddling into small ponds

Dark clouds sprint across
gray skies passing white fluffs
hurdling over smaller puffs
that stand in their way

Slow down water warriors
allow the earth time to
lap up your honey so that
not a drop will be wasted
