Midnight  rain 

Midnight rain is bitter as loneliness, waking the sleeping, stirring the ears of those trying to ward off interruptions.  Midnight rain cleanses the pavements, cleanses the dust from the leaves, invades the calmness, starting the new day before it is wanted.

Midnight rain breaks the stillness,  moves the silence, destroys dreams, brings a new element of action.  Get  up, push yourself into tomorrow!  Remember the loneliness, remember problems not yet faced, actions unstarted, situations waiting to be dealt with.

Midnight rain hammering on the roof outside, startles the sleeping.  Then flows quickly to fill the dams.
