autumn thunderstorm

it’s raining in t. town today

trees bend and sway
as thunder roars

and sheets of rain pour diagonally 
across my view

the thirsty prairie breathes a sigh
and i again remember why

i love these days

fragrance, coolness, surprise
all send my heart reeling

stealing the harshness of drought
and the doubt

that all will be well

An Addendum:
Why even the city streets shine 
under the rains sublime refreshment!
