I watch the rain

Every day in October, I’m sharing poetry-writing inspiration, exercises, and prompts on jordanelisheva.com for the #31poems challenge. This is the poem I wrote in response to today’s prompt:


I watch the rain run down the window glass,
down the driveway,
down the street.

It washes away the dust of summer,
makes the sidewalk shimmer,
and the asphalt shine.

It obscures the view through the window,
makes the cement slippery,
and the roads flood.

I watch the rain.
How can it be so refreshing
and yet so destructive?
