finally I wake to the sound of rain,
a steady drumming on the skylight,
the sky dark and brooding, holding
promises of many hours of rain.
my bicycle sits in the rain and will
sit all day, alone, in the rain; the
windshield wipers will squeak on
every sweep, complaining, when
I leave by bike alone in the rain
and drive the old red heap to work,
she hates to move from her
favorite parking spot where she
can look skyward and watch the
hours of rain stream across her
