Softly sifting,

Dribbling down

The merest whisp of moisture

Puddling across our uneven road,

Not spectacular or breathtaking or magnificent

But lifegiving and essential

Insistently, persistently damp;

Promises of downpours and thunderstorms to come.

After months of barren dryness and dust swathed leaves,

YES, it’s raining!

  1. I love it! Poetry is not my forte when it comes to writing but I enjoy reading it. I read your poem out loud, and came out very rhythmic and with a warm sense of joy. Water is life. We can’t never forget that!
