Rain

image

Rain sneaks into snow
sun bursts through
like a pissed off momma
clouds scatter into snakes
to temper the sinister mountain’s
savage disintrest in the valley they frame

Rain slithers back in
to catch sun just before she hides
their sparks cast a rainbow
stumbling to mirror itself
against cascade in the distance

As familiar landscapes change
with snapchat efficacy
I understand a lifetime
of eyes trained to these mountains
will not see them the same way
day to day

The energy produced
is a second voice in my head
I was born to live here
today in this perfect storm.
