With Rain

rain today
the shop clerk remarked
on it, as though it appeared
out of nowhere
“I don’t know where it came from.”
he said, as I thought of fifth grade
teacher explaining this
precipitous cycle
in a wonderfully plain manner
the sun
evaporates the surface water
to form storm clouds
that replenish the earth
with rain
it has not been hot
though the snow is gone
seems obvious as to where
it went. I let my hood down
and wet my hair
lone pedestrian
anachronistic
in a world now full
of busy vehicles
