Raindrops hit the metal patio cover
first slow, then so fast
it sounds as if marbles are being dumped
from a jar.
Slows and then nothing at all.
Another wave gains strength as the storm
moves forward again.
Just as my emotions start with a tear
running down my cheek, then a rush
like a river while my heartbeats as the thunder.
A moments pause it seems to be, until the
wave of heartache rolls through again.
