rain on a roof
can do what it does
tap, pool, run down
a bit of sun
and it’s gone

snow on a roof
can do what it does
lie, drift, blow
a bit of sun
and it melts
refreezes, melts again
slides down
rips off eaves troughs
pummels down on heads
melts and it’s gone

so subtle
when it is
so difficult
when it’s not
so subtle
