Rain Music

By Carla DeCrona

The melodies of tree rain

are magical

from the dull, droning

Chinese water torture tunes

to the scintillating syncopation

of penthouse jazz

and back street blues

to the jaunty Harlem tap dance 

or the trotting gait of a Gaelic hornpipe

The rain dances of the great trees

are pure, sublime magic
