Rain

Rain.

Rain, rain, rain.

Lightning and thunder in the night

And then the glorious sound—

Manna from Heaven—

Rain.

A good ‘un that refreshed all the plants

And grasses and trees

And birds.

Especially the one mockingbird that never shuts up.

Thank goodness I can’t hear him during the night.

The fans make enough white noise to drown him out.

More rain predicted for today

(After none was predicted as of yesterday).

THEY don’t know.

What a great month so far.

And blessed am I to have gotten all the landscaping done

In the Spring.

Now everything can really put down roots.

Maybe me too.
