Across the Strait

I begin to see the raindrops
In the distance.
I can’t hear the pitter-patter
Or feel the soaking dripping cold
Of the remote pouring.
I’m in the warm sunlight
Watching rain across the waters.
This strait—
Seeming a gulf—
Between
Places;
Here and there
People;
I and you
Cultures;
Us and them
Rends
Perceptions from reality
Scattering the truth like raindrops
In the distance.
