After enduring week upon week of record breaking heat, we have finally turned a corner, and now our days are filled with rain.
The grass is growing again, the flowers are thankful for the cooling rain, the wildlife has no further need for the birdbaths.
The rhythm of life returns to normal.
cooling, soothing rain
splashing in sudden puddles
catching in open screens
that certain smell
of summer rain.
~ Summer Rain : Raymond A Foss
