Conditions are Good

I stand

at the window

of the shop

waiting my turn

with the cashier.

 

Outside

the rain falls

in big drops

sparkling

on the sidewalk

and I wonder.

 

How is it

in my old age

that every kind of weather

has found a place

in me?

 

I call my granddaughter

to tell her

the conditions are good

for a rainbow.

 

Keep a lookout!
