A woman runs by with her dog,
laughing and looking up to the sky,
water running down her face
her T-shirt dark wet with rain.

the tomato plants dancing to raindrops,
thunder and sirens, do they not always
the dog cowers inside while we
laugh and young people shout and
chase through the streets.
rain after endless days of dry heat.
that cleanses all.
