Please send the rain

It’s been a while since we’ve talked,

sat down on the porch swing for an hour or two, sipping iced tea and shooting the breeze.

You’re far away now, half a planet between us; ocean and mountains.

It’s just a little rain, send it over;

air mail doesn’t take up much space,

a parcel no larger than a breadbox.

(always with the breadbox)

Measuring out the right thing to say,

remembering all the previous ones-

dressing the message in a shawl of emotion

wrapped in a prepaid envelope.
