THUNDERSTORM CARWASH
(6/18/17)

nice
to drive
a dirty car
to work
in the driving
rain

to have
the skies clear
about break
time

to take
a few minutes
to wipe down
the vehicle

letting it dry
slowly
in the emerging
sun

feeling as if
Mother Nature
finally
has worked
to your advantage

just hoping
that the streets
are no longer
wet
when it's time
to drive
home

to motor
about
in shiny newness
for a change

like fresh green
springing
from the shower
soaked soil
into the sunlight
