Rainy Weather in Los Angeles ~poem

this rain is opportune
a day like today
i need renewing, washing off
i need my heartbrokenness to dilute
to break off into smaller particles
become residue

i need the rain to wet all the parts that were cracked from the dryness that living off the surface brought

it was a drought

but heartbreak and is drops of rainy water have moisten my soul

my eyes have swollen

is there anymore rain i can take?
there will never be a surplus of rain in the heart
it always needs water
it needs humidity to stay alive
to sprout again after the drought
sprout the pretty
the things underneath the surface

come alive with the rain
come alive in the rain.
