Landscape in the Rain

by Gail Peck

February 7, 2014








Who would dare
   to paint the rain
      except one who knows

the sound upon the pane—
   to make a landscape
      then dampen the village—

July when all is green
   cypresses taller than
      roofs—what the eye retains

can the mind forget—
   those crows with extended wings
       above the crops aren’t startled

by the crack of simulated
   gunshot—nothing falls from the sky
      but summer rain
