Next Came Rain

There was a relief in feeling the storm’s approach
A release of pressure
The dropping of the other shoe

There was a relief in feeling the storm’s approach
With the smell of rain heavy
As the slam of a door, a suitcase, the trunk door

There was a relief in feeling the storm’s approach
Those first lazy drops of rain splash
On the rear window as the car pulls away for the last time
