As the Rain Falls

As the rain falls down

and the drops chase each other

from top to bottom

of the windowpane,

I wonder how much

will accumulate.

It’s supposed to be

a “wet” summer

with lots of rain

and flood warnings.

Reminding us all of 2015

holes in the roads,

people stranded on roofs,

everything shut down,

non-potable water warnings

with boil advisories.

Rain is not just rain anymore.

It’s always memories.
