a poem by Lee Emmett, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

gentle sound of rain
in puddles plopping
pings metal corrugations
dripping and dropping

swishing and rushing
gushing into gutters
gurgling in down-pipes
running water splutters

pushing into crevices
washing window-panes
dashing down drive-ways
flushing out drains

splashing onto roads
spatters parked cars
forms scatter-patterns
like pock-marked Mars

crashing to crescendo
as brassy cymbal's roar
cacophony on roof
deafening downpour
