In the parking lot after the rain.

Stormy clouds sweep
Over the parking lot
Unleashing their wrath
On the parched pavement below.
As the watery warfare escalates
The parking lot is transformed
Into a giant lake
With scattered islands of concrete
Seated in the midst of a raging river
Shaped into form by canals
Once parking spots
Now submerged.
Birds descend to wander
The temporary wetlands
To make the most of its offerings
Before the floodwaters recede
To uncover the parking lot
Once submerged.
As the dark clouds disperse
The sun reappears
To hasten the restoration
Of the dry, parched pavement
Of the parking lot
Before the rains came.
