Rain Haiku II

the rain and the moon
shining up my street

(Kind of a reverse haiku, in shape.
Do you know what I mean by shining up?
The way you shine up a penny, or an apple?)

No, I didn't read "shining up" the way you explain you meant it, at first. I read it as if you are standing looking out at the long shining wet ribbon of street stretched out before you, the moon hanging in the rain clouds at the far end. Both ways work I think? Nice one!
