How to slow a rainstorm:
Watch the way the water falls.
Watch the way the raindrops catch on leaves,
Watch for the wisdom in the gray.
Watch for the darkening, the heat underneath, and the way the mist moves.
Remember how we could curse the rain,
and the rush,
of our liquid lives.
And they will fall just the same.
Or we could watch.
We could open our mouths not to speak but to listen.
Because if we taste it deep enough,
I swear –
we could slow a rainstorm.
