Rain in the City

The rain is falling hard today, pouring, pounding,
Drumming on the balcony, outside my window
Rain is falling.
Washing away the cigarette butts and pop bottles
Unearthed after the long winter, buried under a blanket of white
Rain is falling.
Rivers of muddy water running in the streets
Torrents of water from the sky to the sidewalks
Little waterfalls… running over curbs and cracks in the road
Rain is falling.
Even in the gray and dirty city, rain still smells fresh
Fresh with spring and new beginnings
Renewal, Rejuvenation, Revival
Rain is falling.
