Everything growing bends in the rain,
the grasses slumps in the field,the flowers
break,the dirt sags and dips underfoot.
It’s painful to watch. Savage rain pounds
the land,swinging the trees,sad comment
on the animals hiding under the porch.
Everything kneels and turns tail in the
storm. The rain,the wind,the cold,the dark,
a dip in the day. A lawn shattered.
