Rain At Last!

I watch as it falls
… drizzling … misting … rain!
Falling to earth to quench the thirst …
to seep into the cracked and dry soil
and to wet nature’s constant appetite for rain!

The red dust of last week now seems forgotten
with just a hint … a small reminder
… as I watch ochre coloured dribbles of moisture meander down my window pane.

I snuggle deeper into my lounge
all secure and comfy,
my mind content to watch the patterns it creates.

Outside my window the garden takes on a deeper shade of green
… as if the plants are smiling as they enjoy the shower from above.
Droplets of water gather along the leaves,
beads of glowing silver … where they slither and slide
then collide to form a trickle that glides down the stems
before sprinkling to the ground below
… then like the last hurrah!
its gone as it seeps down to the depths .
.. to the thirsty roots below.

Artist's Description

At almost the same time as I submitted these words to Red Bubble, Larry Davis submitted his wonderful image *"HERE*":http://www.redbubble.com/people/cullodenmist/ar...
Larry has always been a great supporter of my work so I’d like to dedicate these words to his The Tears of Ida Emi – go check it out, he’s even added music to the image!

The weather has been so dry … too dry. The plants are withering. The recent onslaught of westerly winds and red dust driven in from the outback has further distressed the plants and made us all yearn for moisture to clean the air and the land. It started last night with a thunderstorm followed by steady, gentle rain … its easy to sit back, relax and enjoy what has been provided … rain!
