Like New


They say the rain
is coming today,
or maybe it was
yesterday.
Drunken clouds 
darken the sky,
big drops promise 
to soak us through,
no one knows
the reason why.
Everyone says
we'll be okay,
though I'm not sure
of the rain at all.
Finally the air
becomes so still,
and everything seems
to glow like new,
as soon as the rain
begins to fall.
