An early morning breeze ruffle bird’s feathers
as they bathe in last night’s rain water,
lizards rush along the hot concrete blazing in the morning sun.
Squirrels gather acorns knocked to the ground
as unripened nuts were torn from their branches
during the storm.
Lawnmowers struggle through thick, muddy grass,
homeowners rush to tame lush gardens
as tropical heat builds,
and thunder rumbles again.
