You could have a big dipper   

The Miracle of Rain by Richard LeDue






Each drop saturates a poet's wonder:

giving life, but ruining expensive haircuts

(at least you left a good tip),

while the trees drink it up

for free,

and grass doesn't know what drowning is,

or how damp leather loafers

are ruined, as their owners

don't have the spare time

to stop

and watch water fall from the sky

like a god's loose change.




 

Richard LeDue (he/him) currently lives in Norway House, Manitoba. His poems have appeared in various publications throughout 2021. He is the author of three chapbooks, with his third chapbook, “The Kind of Noise Worth Writing Down,” forthcoming in early 2022 from Kelsay Books. @LedueRichard
