A calm soothing rain softly drifts down
In the early morning hours
When the birds are still sleepily testing their morning songs
And the early light of dawn bathes the land
As it it awakens from it’s nightly slumber.
The smell of wet earth permeates the smokey haze filled air
caused by the wild fires of summer.
Rumbles in the far off distance warn of the passing storm.
The dry cracked earth welcomes the rain
Sighing , crying out for more.
Flowers raise their stately heads and green foilage
Reaching for the water blessing.
A chill breeze blows through the window by my desk
Causing a shiver
Letting me know that although we are
In the middle of these hot August sweltering
Dog days of summer that
These too will soon pass.
And the chill frosty days of Fall
Will soon be upon us
When the pumpkins turn orange on the vine
And the leaves fall from the trees
In a kaleidescope of colors.
When our breaths come out in small
puffs and the frost covered grass crunches
under our feet.
I can smell Fall in the air
In this season of summer.
Soon Summer’s hot days
Will fade away for another year
And Fall will dance in on
A cool Autumn breeze.
The cycle of nature will go on
In a neverending circle
