“Summer Rain” – a poem

Water gushing from the skies
Deluging precipitation.
Neighbour’s gutters overflowed
And sodden lawns filled with clover
Rinsing away the stifling sun
And midden heat which steals your sleep
Open windows now sealed for summer
Whilst rivulets form on frosted panes.
Cleansing atmospheric hues
And bringing freshness, damp and cool
Welcomed weather in midst of heat
Despite the thunderous booming intent
No hint of blue in colourless skies
And here to stay til morning’s dew
