After The Rain ...



After so many days and nights
Of unforgiving heat
Finally a sound once familiar
Hoped for, wished for.
From a soft morning sky
Of grey and mist
Rain falling, falling
The air is fresh and cool once more
Scented with the sweet fragrance
Of rain, foliage and flowers
In this misty light-
The colours take on a softer hue
Brown will soon return to green.
The parched earth
Dry and thirsty
Drinks rapturously.
Languid leaves and foliage
Glisten again
The trees revive, sigh
Refreshed
Their thirst quenched.
From small pools
Rivulets form and flow
To the lower reaches
Of the valley.
Their journey fulfilled
To replenish and swell 
The dry creek beds
And the water of life will flow once again ...

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamy for your lovely words, yes, 'blessed' rain, it has been so hot and dry here for weeks, a concern when I am so close to the bushland. My garden was also looking very sad. It rained all of Sunday night and then again yesterday, it was so lovely, I was hoping it would last for longer. Perhaps we will get some more rain before the heat of Summer sets in, I do hope so.

Thank you dear Leovi for your beautiful words.
I also love the rain, it is refreshing and restorative, there is nothing quite like it to bring new life to the rivers, plants, grasses and trees.
Today I found many new leaves on my trees and plants and many new buds just waiting to burst forth after their refreshing drink.

Thank you dear COL for your always beautiful and poetic words, it is so lovely to have you visit again.

I love the feelings and scents in the air after it has rained, the whole landscape is transformed into mists of soft greens and grey/blue skies.
Always refreshing after the heat we experience here.
Love and hugs my dear friend.
