Beth Markley is a Facebook friend who, with her husband, is stationed in Japan with the Navy. She posts a delightful variety of links and observations about her life there and about life in general. This “found” poem resulted from a series of posts that had, I thought, poetic qualities. Enjoy!
Steam is rising off the streets
It’s that hot and it just rained.
The rain is really coming down now
And the temperature has dropped, too,
I’ve got my doors open
Listening to the rain,
Watching the rain.
