A man and the rain

At the seashore, a man
Is listening to the rain
He isn’t looking at the sea
From where
Frightened crabs and turtles crawl
The man is listening to the rain
He knows the dinner is on the table
He’s listening to the rain
He hears the birds
Gathering behind his back
He’s listening to the rain
He’s writing about the rain
The rain is his home
