Rain, rain, Stay Awhile

Rain has been a rare occurrence.

And when it does rain – it pours.

Over the noise of the pouring rain,

the construction noise from below my window

simmers to a low hum and a tap is barely audible.

The air around this industrial zone becomes more

fresh and breathable as the rain washes the dust and dirt down

away to some distant drain –

No trucks today, no lumber jacks, no men screaming at another –

and definitely no one walking about the avenues talking aloud

to disrupt the peaceful community down below my window.

Next Post Up: Thurs., Dec. 11th Jan. 8th, 2015 due to current reconstruction plans
