not a care in the world

sometimes the rain falls
without thinking

i can see it
the way the drops splatter
on the ground
like a cloud has just sighed deeply
and released
over farmland, over wars,
over weddings, over funerals
reaching the earth
in apathy and indifference

and i wonder if sometimes
it doesn’t feel
just a wee bit bad about that
