Uncover the Sun

No Fear


The rain has left puddleprints

along the sidewalks 

and in the streets,

gurgling through the drains

like a song to the sky


No one is out walking 

but you and I,

delightfully sprinkled

but not sodden

in our sneakers and coats


The rain fears nothing,

not even the sunniest days

when it becomes only a dream

waiting for new clouds

to bring it forth again


The newbud scent

of mulch and flowers

dances through the air,

reminding us, it’s a fine thing

to breathe deeply 


No matter how much human fear

clings to houses and cars,

the rain shrugs wetly

and keeps making puddles

of sheer joy
