Rainy day redux

A storm
magnifies sound,
as lines of livid, liquid
mallets pound down
metallic gutter spouts,
striking off clear
cannonball cascades
that bombard under-eve
bouquets harder than
hummingbirds or bees
at any bloom-side banquet,
groundswells
steadily
gathering
ricochets
of unladen
water balloon bullets, 
triggering
an ear-snapping
rubber band recoil  
into Spring’s flocking 
swan song cacophonies, 
summer sun caught
behind a cloudy corner,
stuck sobbing
in gray shades
of handkerchief
gloomy grief,
rain wearing
out its
welcome mat
on wet
puddle
jumping
feet.

    Thunderstorms have returned! Hopefully this rain will cool off the heat streak of upper-80 degree temperatures we’ve been experiencing. As long as lightning doesn’t cast its bolts lakeside and catch me while I’m out in the canoe, I welcome cloudy weather. Hope everyone has a safe and relaxing weekend!
