In the dark of the night
I am out in the rain
Listening to the lightning flashes
And watching the thunder claps.
The canopy sheltering me is keeping me dry;
But, I am cooled by the freshness in the air.
Sorrento has been wanting the rain for about two months now
And maybe this nighttime downpour will feed the oranges
And the lemons that grow so abundantly here;
Also the olives maturing nicely in the groves to make their extra virgin oil.
The city carries on below me; and will, no doubt, be Sorrento as usual in the morning.
Jane joins me and the evening is complete.
