Ground soggy, asphalt

slick as trees and shrubs

 

wear crinoline petticoats

to show off  the vegetation

 

and we wonder where

all of the water will go,

 

but water does what 

water does, seeking its own

 

level, then burgeoning above

barriers made by God

 

and man, and only

God knows when it will

 

end, when summer will

begin, and when we will

 

regret wishing

the rain would end,

 

because when the rain ends

the drought begins.

That ending: pow. Right between the eyes in spot on truth! Excellent, Carol.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
