California Rain

Raindrops pattern

Drip drops on skylights
A soothing sleep melody
Too wet to walk dogs

Clouds puff and posture
Sunshine dominates the morn
Puddles dry quickly

Aquifers fill up
Thirsty state still not sated
California rain

    It was nice to see the rain and sad to see the damage, but I hope more is coming.
