As with many areas of the country, it has been hot and humid but also very dry. There has been little rain in my area, so the grass is brown, plants are wilting, and pools are low.
Many days, the forecast says rain, but the rain has other plans. It simply disappears from the radar.
The other day, though, the rain came unannounced, and I pulled up a chair to watch its show. I wish I could have seen my own face because I felt the smile of relief for the half hour it performed.
I did take pictures of the rain because I did not know when it will decide to visit again, and I wrote a series of haiku.
sheds light on the miracle
rain relief in drought
Tapping in delight
rain dances on the pavement
quenching earth's craving
A rushing river
