The Pavement's Prelude

I know how great is the Lord,
  how great is our God above all gods.
The Lord accomplishes all that he wills,
  in the heavens and on the earth,
  in the sea and the depths of the oceans.
He brings in clouds from the ends of the earth,
  makes lightning for the rain-clouds,
  from his storehouse he calls forth the winds.
                                                  Psalm 135 Universalis

                                                                                                      Google Images

The rain fell down
As if it had nothing better to do
Landing hard on the pavement
In tens of thousands  

Drops revolving
 Becoming a minion of tiny opal wings
Fluttering up in the splashing myriad
For a moment’s

Before surrendering 
Into the peace of the pavement’s 
Gliding over 

The avenues
Of nourishment
Through alleyways
Of prayer.
