beach rain upsets the balance of a summer day
rain gushes sideways and blows through the empty street
the decks and pools slide wet and slippery
vacationers peer from their temporary stilted wooden homes
drifting outside to see a picture or walk the bustling shops
frogs and turtles smile.
i long to stay indoors and read
i watch the rain trickle down the roof onto the weathered wooden deck
i see it pool at the bottom of the driveway
rain bounces off the crystal blue pool water
the seabirds fly a little slower and shelter in the greenery on the dunes.
they fish and fly regardless.
the sky is grey and hazy, but the spark of sun underneath those clouds gives me hope!
