Back to the Pluperfect Present, Tense

Back to the present, be it pluperfect or tense or neither or both.

Pluperfect, a quintessentially mysterious concept.

As Merriam-Webster informs us:

Late Latin plusquamperfectus, literally, more than perfect
Date: 15th century

A steady rain.

Late evening, May, cool.

Hypnotic tapping of raindrops on the pavement.

Breathing in and out.

Pluperfect, by any other definition.
