    the rain stopped
    just before I woke up
    and opened the back door
    to find
    fresh-washed sunshine
    dustless leaves
    and a brand new day
    splashing barefoot
    in the puddles

    now I am out in the dark
    so the dogs can make
    one last circle
    of a yard they know
    by heart
    so we can go to sleep
    while a brand new night
    soaks itself
    into the soil
