afternoon rain

the rain falls like a spell
upon the summer pavement
a million scattered droplets
shimmering in the afternoon sky
i sit inside, aloof and accepting
goals unattained but hope not lost
the deluge slows as i sip my coffee
its warmth lighting my eyes and my spirit
the raindrops of my failures evaporating
against the burning confidence of my heart
it’s okay, i say to myself
i knew this would take time
the rain slows
the torrent becoming a trickle
and i smile as evening plans solidify
reminding me of my real purpose
everything is fine, it always is
it’s only the mind that makes me forget
