"When the Rain Finally Fell" by Tian Berry


When the rain finally fell, I wasn’t that excited

The last three days of rain hadn’t broken the humidity so why should today be any different?

When the rain finally fell I listened 

to the ker-plunka-plunk as it hit the ground 

the roof

the polyester hood on my rain jacket

When the rain finally fell I watched the cars go by 

and I realized I missed having somewhere to be 

something to do

someone to be because

when the rain finally fell

I realized I was beginning to fall too
