When Birds Watch Rain


platinum and grey

against the sky

it starts to rain

clouds silver linings break

birds tucked away in the trees

are quiet now

water gathers down paths

collected by gravity

intensity varies from

down pour

to steady

to trickle

these clouds

are in no hurry

and like variety

then suddenly a hole appears in the clouds

the sun shines through while it rains

like liquid sunshine

birds peek out from within the trees

and excitedly tweet

secure in their knowledge

that somewhere there is a rainbow
