After the Rain

Slipping in a little late in the day (night!) with my Poetry Friday post, inspired by my evening walk.

After the Rain

A relay,
      a medley,
a tag team,
      a chorus;
up the street,
around the block,
through the suburb
and across the town;
      after the rain,
before the weekend,
      after the heat,
before the sun sets,
      after a fine day,
before the next deluge;
and droning,
and whining,
a buzz of mowers
      cuts a swathe through
luscious lengths of
green grassy
