Earth Day Aria


Awoken by drumming of rain on roof
percussionist plunks on the canvas awning
the collective sigh of each drop of water brushing urgently through budding leaves
a crescendo burble as raindrops gather into one madly joyful mass
swirling through the gutters and rushing into eager earth

Propelled from the comforting nest of my bed
by the matchless gift of this planetary music
wrapped in blanket, barefoot, I step out
into this animated air
baptized anew by the beauty of a drenched morning
