the precipitation of a lifetime

To Build a Rainstorm

(finally, it rained!)

pull the drops of water from
a cloud and take yourself out
from under that umbrella

nothing will keep you dry anyway

even the dew, sweat, and
precipitation of a lifetime
of clouds can't exist without
the carpets of water

that fall from our
and slide from mountains into
pools in rocks

mold a raindrop in your
and carry it thousands of miles

to the furthest forest
