hail street



early spring (that thinks it’s winter) storms

the rain switched suddenly
cracking the sky open
pouring popcorn down
each hailstone like a drop of paint
covering the sidewalk-lawn-street canvas
with a white sheen

  1. Wow, we haven’t done hail yet at least…..

    Winter weather in April
    Makes all of my senses ill
    Mud over our ankles, pleeze!
    Sheep have mud beyond their knees.
    Chickens cower in the wind
    Cows keep mooing, let us in!
    Wind beats on the house all night
    Spring birds huddle up in fright
    Where is 60, 70, more?
    Even 50–give us four,
    Five or six, or eight degrees
    Oh pleeze! Don’t leave
    Us here like this
    Give us now some springtime bliss!
