Melted rain

Yesterday’s sojourn for the snow was short;
it fell fast and quick, and it disappeared
off of apartment buildings and scaffoldings
as rain, melting, hitting the heads of passersby
the morning after, in a bright day of sun,
making accidental mini-rainbows
dancing in sewage grates.

Sickness is done, must breathe easy.
Back to work, joining the crowd again
as we drive through underpasses and bridges
where the new melted rain
flows down easily.
