Beneficial Rains

Beneficial Rains

Beneficial Rains ☔️

Here come the beneficial morning rains,
To liven up the world,
To bring color to the grasses and the roses.
They mitigate the pain
Of a midsummer drought resistance
As a flock of high birds
Disappear into the distance.

Now let’s just savor
Evey little drop of nature’s favor.
Time for Mankind is short.

Shirley Satterfield
