The droplets of water run down the tarmac and
into the river,
turning the ground wet in mud.
I parked my Honda suv along the bank of the river,
its windshield beginning to mist up.
A tiny cloud of mist forms on the window
where my hot breath landed
the droplets continue to splash and fall on my window .
The rain soaks to the skin of my car.
The water level rise enough to dip my ankles
A blast of wind hits my car
Splashing rain drops, the car slightly shakes inside.
The droplets hang on the leaves and fall
It has been raining heavily since this morning
just enough to make a river angry.
The river is full and flowing, and
the rain continues to fall in heavy drops
behind the houses in the folds of the hill.
