Love The Rain

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. It’s been a wet and raining spring and early summer. People are complaining. I cannot. I thank every day it rains to nourish and moisten the soil of our semi-arid steppe landscape which in recent years has succumbed to the drying heat and wildfires of climate change.

I can only love the rain each day and it’s cool and refreshing care of mother earth, which sustains us mere humans. I thank you for each drop that keeps us from drought and wildfire. Thank you, blessed rain.

Love the Rain

Love the rain
Yes we want the warmth
of the sun
the light of the world

Love the rain
the cool
the seeping
into the soil

Love the rain
spreading nutrients
feeding the roots
holding foliage strong

Love the rain
For cooling the heat
of the sun
stopping the fire of the world

Love the rain
the clouds
the cool
to right the world.
