HARD RAIN GONNA FALL*

Rain and wind so severe, the road has a surf:
Gusts of wind pushing accumulated pools of 
Water down the street, making actual waves.

Wind audible, jostling evergreen boughs, swaying trees;
Rain gushing from down spouts, bouncing off roofs.
Just another blustery, wintry day in Western Washington.

And, then, calming weather pattern, rain abated,
Patches of blue sky, slight breeze, sunshine on shoulders.**
Just another bi-polar day in Western Washington.
