puddles

when writing in the rain
poems form like puddles
iamb puddles
word puddles
dancing with each raindrop
rippling with each gust of wind

when writing in the rain
as downpour patters on palms
each frond cries out
in ecstasy they shout
bathing in the brilliance
droplets pool into each sentence

when writing in the rain
raindrop melee mingles with mesquites
cacti fill their folds
drink as much as each holds
doves coo as downpour idles
corvids splash in poetic puddles
