Waiting for rain during a drought

A Misty Day


 


The morning loomed dull


Cloudy and wet


My mind was racing


I was so upset


It wasn’t raining – just yet


No more than a mist


 


The road slippery


The air cool


All I could see


Were puddles on the ground at school


No, no rain – just yet


No more than a mist


 


The forecast gloomy


For the next day or two


We need it badly


To live it’s a must


But no rain – just yet


No more than a mist


 


The sound of tyres


The screech of brakes


As the trucks slide


Any which way


But no rain – just yet


No more than  a mist


 


Then thunder came


And lightning flashed


Loud and booming


Like the fear in my heart


Yet still no rain – just yet


No more than a mist


 


When suddenly


It came down


My heart was ready to burst


No more pain


This broke the chain


Gone, was the infernal mist

The rain is often therapeutic and healing not just for the land but for the human soul. Thank you, Denise. Blessings to you,

Regis
