Green Rain

Green Rain

Is best served at 2 AM
While everyone sleeps and the mixture of
Salt air and mossy pine
Exudes a crisp clean scent of growth
The temperate grey freshness
That sparks goose bumps
Promises more drops, sleet, showers
Rain…wavers in precip-itory wonder
That some call liquid sunshine
But it’s just a barrier protective
Of the oxygen we breathe
To sustain the great spirit of life
No other town can claim
In no other climate
It washes our babies in cascade beauty
As they splash in web-footed delight
It’s a glacial carved phenomenon
That we hoard in secret
A treasure to inhale
Green rain receiving
