A rainy downpour.

My taste for rain
has changed.
I used to live
in daily downpours,
but now, my days are
mostly light drizzle.
I still get soaked, but
in more manageable ways.
I have torrential weeks
with flood warnings in place

They’re rarer than they used to be.

I much prefer
my state of drizzle
even if there aren’t
many dry days.
