The first

A sudden flash, then

thunder 

disturbing team of horses a far distance from the window

a boy  chalk-drawing on the sidewalk looks up at the sky

a rat rattles the cage and escapes

the woman pauses pouring tea on her cup

the liquid seems frozen in space

a baby wakes 

the first rain since Saturday.
