Where Has the Rain Gone?

…with silver liquid drops

Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

— Langston Hughes

I’d like to hear the rain

again, smell the air

fresh just as it begins,

watch as the birds

find shelter, fluff 

their dewy feathers,

content as I am 

to just listen

to the comforting

thrumming,

a susurration only

falling water makes.

—C.L. Fisher, January 2022
