After Summer Rain

After the rain had ceased,

And the clouds parted ways,

A form floating in the sky moved

Towards us.

The sun, with its usual bravery,

Reappeared above us,

As we looked up to try to recognized

The object floating above.

A capiz turtle shell revealed itself

To us, levitating in the summer day,

Creating a spectacle in the

August afternoon.

Something new after a Florida rain,

You said.

Always something new after the Florida

Sky opens up.

A shape flying over us,

A capiz shell floating, just for us.

The Florida August afternoon spectacle,

For those who wait for the rain to stop.
