Rainstorm by April Michelle Bratten

for Eli'sha 

There is a rainstorm in his brain. 

I can see the waters build 

and on the cusp-- 
music bright and earnest. 

His 3 year old eyes peer out 
from behind the veil 

and I see it all turn 

to blizzard. 

His breath appears 
in front of his small mouth 
as he forms songs 

on the cloud.
