Thirty Percent Chance Of Rain


Not for applause
Nor care for snickering
Chirp, Chirp, Tweet, Tweet
Unseen birds in an unseen world
Parallel worlds of existence
A cat walks gingerly across the yard
Plop, Plop, water slapping on flat granite
Woo…, Woo.., of a whooping crane.
A whooshing, whispering south wind
Tinkering bells of mini wind chimes
Dry skin feels a tingling chill
The curry leaves are dancing
the birds of paradise palms are nodding
some swaying, some waving
A blue gray overcast sky
Cotton balls saturated and dense
Thirty percent chance of rain.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
