After the rain and before the sun  

 


The twilight moments when the rain is welcome 

Only in times of drought and pain

Can such gentle decoration of water and light 

Bring calmness like the rain. 


After the rain and before the sun 

Eyes adjust to softer tones, 

The soil is sighing, breathing and giving 

Calm now, calm now even in my bones. 


After the rain and before the sun 

The urgency adjusts to caring, 

After the rain and before the sun

We see the detail- not the daring.
