Rain Lullaby

Rain wraps itself around us,
Low grey clouds thick
garments for the hills
that welcome the adornment.
Water from the sky
meets water on the earth,
sweet raindrops losing
themselves in salty seas.
I lose myself in soothing
melodies on corrugated iron.
Tiny percussionists,
their single beat, an essential
part of this symphony,
this liquid lullaby that
sings me to sleep.
