Not a drought buster, the inch of rain that fell; but O, so appreciated...thank you for the prayers. :)

raising their hands in
praise, grass shoots accept blessing
in the form of rain;

it's been a long time;
their population has been
thinned by flames and drought;

distant memories,
as they gratefully drink of
the living waters.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

Grass and women have been said to soften the outline of the hard world. I am inclined to believe this. You filled in the outline quiet nice, Karla. Shooting up there!

A renewal. Well said.

This is a good format and that first image hangs with the reader throughout of the uplifted hands, great work.

Now I can understand the statement or name better of Sweet Grass and all it's implications as you have been telling us in your previous writes on draught.

wish we could give you a little more from here, as my roof is wearing under the weight of water... love your opening - I could feel the joy at thirst quenched. I know the thirsting season and how the burn of the sun fades when I drink the living water. really wonderful poem, Karla. Dawn

Good to hear, this has been a tough few months for a lot of folks, that is for sure. How you like that sexy photo?

And those green shoots are just so precious when they first appear. You have given that "parched" feel marvellously and makes me feel incredibly thirsty... and leave me longing for spring! :)) TY LOL Kate xx

Good to see the rain again, even if it wasn't enough to break the drought conditions; still, it is better than NO rain at all, like it's been as of late! Very well done; brava!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :)
