Our creek of late has been only mud,

Without water, its life giving blood,

A major thunderstorm has upon us come,

In several minutes of rain, already we have a flood…


The grass turned brown,

Dust had been our ground,

Flowers have been dyin’,

I ain’t herein lyin’…


With this pounding rain,

I see the one leak in my home that does remain,

Damned if I can find it to fix the thing,

Been tryin’ since this past spring…

Nothing like a strong rain after a dry spell! Here we have been experincing a heat wave.........I moved to get away from that type of heat but it followed me. We too had thunderstorms last night :-)

Imagery was brilliant. I felt the woes of the lack of rain. Hope it pours buckets. Returning the flowers to bloom. Find and fix that leak.
