it's just started to rain.
the sight of flowing rainwater...
haha! that downpipes a joke,
around here it flows through the holes in the guttering,
probably inside the pipe it's bone dry!
the sound of rain on the tin roof
of the trickling water as it runs in rivulets from that holey guttering
plops onto the ground below.
the cooling touch of the fine rainspray
swept in by the wind
across from the jacaranda trees
and in through the kitchen window.
the garden filled with raindiamonds
dripping from the trees
shining in the rainclear air!
i can almost hear
the earth whispering 'thank you'
as it sponges up every last drop.
rain or shine
i hope your day is fine...
