Last Night...

Last night in a dream it rained.
Came down in buckets.
All through the night.
Washing the pavement
and things that creep in the grass
things that creep through my soul.
Fear, anxiety, doubt.
I awoke with a start.
Sat upright.
It was raining.
The sound of it
as it pelted windows
made me remember
and it was beautiful.
