Here's an original submission to tide you over until I get back from CityOfMyBirth. Hope you enjoy!
cool water sluices down the plains and valleys of my body
while dew-spiked eyelashes close against the crystalline drops
cold rain gouges furrows into the soil beneath my feet
the glossy green leaves whip back and forth, shuddering in the wind
the delicate buds hunch their shoulders as if to ward off the driving rain
all the fury of the spent storm swirls and eddies down the gutters
out to the sunlit sea
and calm returns again.
