Auckland in the rain

This was written a few weeks back. It's been drier lately!

amphibious nature

winter has struck
water has invaded
city streets deluged
gutters are rivers

shiny leaves float
on sidewalk brick
yellows and reds
gleam of day

puddles at corners
wind-wrecked umbrellas
like broken wings
of skin-soaked creatures

awnings leak cascades
open crossroads beckon
with square waterfalls
from murky clouds

get thee home
says raspy throat
my feet obey
through urban canyons

hallelujah! a bus
no granted fact
haul me homeward
through stubborn downpour

rain gives way
to lightened sky
return to dry
sated earth sings
