You rained last night
I heard you as I slept
Lifting moisture from the air
And part of us
Into you
Becoming you
Carrying us
Holding us
As long as you could
Then releasing
Leaving us to fall
Tumble
Together but separate
We came down in a torrent
Covering everything
Bringing life
And this morning
The morning after
I rode my bike
And I felt you
Hanging in the air
As a mist
As humidity
As humanity
Which rose with the day
Back into you
Repeating the cycle
Cycle after cycle
After the rain
But before the next

Urban Simplicity.
