.love of the smothering kind.

no, 
were not talking romantic love here
(though that one too is there)

this kind of showering 
is rain alright;

but not the tend-er, steady 
pouring that blossoms you
into 
a wild, magnificent bloom

this here rain-love
is a violent pelting -

that which unsettles
and uproots; smothering 
sprouting

flee free, dear
precious ibis
‘fore this downpour is done
clipping
those splendid wings of yours
