Martin Potter

Manchester Weather Watching

Coasting by roof reefs the rain
A storm at sail through habitation
Rough casts at your window pane

Clouds on the march though stone
Corners cut into their formation
Coasting by roof reefs the rain

Runs raids across an afternoon
Obscuring atmospheric motion
Rough casts at your window pane

Against your fragile visor screen
Its liquid grey ammunition
Coasting by roof reefs the rain

Reaches the demarcation line
Containing pent up insulation
Rough casts at your window pane

Sprawling the droplets slide down
Short of their irrigating mission
Coasting by roof reefs the rain
Rough casts at your window pane
