Free Falling Rain
As the rain gushed down the gutter
I had no words left to utter
awe and might came with the shower
left me numb and void of power.
The drips and drops you might surmise
fell on my head to my surprise
they led to splash and splurge delights
while my mind filled with keen insights.
Some ponds and streams did form nearby
which told that storms do not belie
great strength and gall, what fierce action
of which they showed a mere fraction.
Noise that boomed with swift deep thunder
brought me to the point of wonder
while the wind led to clean airflow
end did come with arc of rainbow.
