Green rain

So sudden

a downpour

this rain greens

as sounds

still signal

petrichor .


We hear as odd

this hiss of steam

as water freshens

the evening air,

this churning rush

of cloudburst,

the constant


of this thing,

this greening

this life tapping.


The currawong

wakes among

drooping sycamore

leaves, curious

as to the weight

of her wings
