hard dark sky
trees braced motionless
in sewer air
lightning flashes thunder rolls
winds roar in a summer storm
I’ve realized lately that I rarely write about the rain. Then I read ‘Fifty shades of rain’ by Toni Spencer at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads and decided to notice the next rainfall more closely. The storm came tonight. Apparently there are more than 50 words in Japanese for different types of rain.
