UNEXPECTED RAIN
(6/12/18)

we check
the weather
for the coming
week
on Monday

dry

highs
in the mid
90s

close to
100
by Friday

slim chances
of precipitation

that summer
sameness
that drives
everyone
a bit insane

then
to wake up
Tuesday

with the
grumble
of thunder
in the distance

sprinkles
on the way
to work

a downpour
later
in the morning

is a joyous
surprise

a blessed
relief
from the sunny
monotony

we wonder
at the weather
experts

with all
of their
high tech
wizardry

if they
are so happy
today

nature
has made them
fools

again

we happily
forgive them
however
for their
faulty
forecast

this time
