Remnants

this morning a grayness and rain –
remnants of hurricane Harvey
no wind   only rain
how quietly it falls through the pines
as though having spun away
from the eye of the storm
it only wants to rest
among the pine needles
already sleeping on the ground

calling a friend
in houston   getting only
a busy signal
