From darkened clouds,

It does fall on partying crowds,

Cleaning the air & knocking down the dust,

Creating, but not quite right away, rust…


Thunder, lightening & heavy drops,

Could be this storm may be for us the tops,

Thunderhead clouds billowing so high,

Like feeling wet tears when heaven does cry…


High humidity & even higher heat,

Don’t walk on the street, bad for feet,

Then the cooling rain does approach from the west,

Welcome to join us it is, yes a MOST welcome guest…

Sounds good to me, Ed...both the rain and your po'try! Think I'll turn on my sprinklers and go sit 'neath 'em, since rain keeps side-steppin' around me :o) Just too dang hot!!

... makes me think of Woodstock, or, closer to home, Glastonbury Festivals - seriously, year on year it just gets totally DELUGED and I have never seen rain like it. Good for wellington boot sales but a total no-no for the amps and electrical equipment. No, rain and rust never do sleep.... as dear old Neil Young constantly reminds us... Like dewdrops on a parched tongue so this write is... could do with a few more rays this way, myself... if you're fed up with them, that is... xxx

Albuquerque is hot and dry. What we wouldn't give for some refreshing rain, not buckets - just enough to not have to water for a few days.

God bless you,

When it's too hot, then the rain becomes a welcome guest, for it cools everything down.
