Water

The heavens open;
rain eagerly falls to the earth.
So sweet and demure in puddles
and little culvert pipes.

The individual rivulets and streams
join together,
become a mob, and riot.
Cascading multitudes of droplets,
a cacophany
stronger than concrete.
Erosion of embankments,
trees falling down.

Splashing on out to sea,
the unruly mass
is no more.
Neptune swallows it up and
spits it back out in waves.
