Melted Rain – Poem by Carrie Magness Radna

Poetry by Carrie Magness Radna

Yesterday’s snow was short;
it fell fast and quick, disappearing
off apartment buildings and scaffolding
as rain, melting, hitting the heads of passersby
the morning after, in a bright day of sun,
making accidental mini-rainbows
dancing in sewage grates.

Sickness done, I must breathe easy.
Back to work, I join the crowd again
as we drive through underpasses and bridges
where the new melted rain
flows down easily.
