It is raining

Rain is falling straight down,

like water through a sieve.

The sound is soft – comforting.

The street sounds wet as

vehicles roll by.

The canal is already dry,

the winter’s snow and rain

saturated into the floor,

greening the weeds that flourished

after the drought of 2012.

Where did the floods from 2010

go, when both the canal and the Cuyahoga River

spilled over their parallel banks, flooding the

businesses in Valley View, again.  

There was talk among city planners of opening

the canal to canoes and kayaks.  

Not this summer, from the looks of it.
