Thud, Thud Falls The Rain

The rainfall taps on the ground
thud, thud it goes,
sonorous as it could be
a heavy downpour,

The concrete roofed solid houses
in the vicinity provide no base for
knock knocking so the rain falls
fairly dumb on them,

The garden becomes inundated
as the rain comes down
heavily every evening
these four days,

the lawn remains soaked
the flower beds are immersed t
the flowers stay drenched
while the leaves turn green

ridden off the dust
that has piled for weeks
the mornings take
a fresh look with the heat
well under control.
