The leaves must be praying to their
rain god for all the nourishment
he’s sending down to their humble
heretofore dry existence in recent
Prayers of gratitude to have a meal
and to store some away for the
not so rainy days in the summer.
A water planet without water is as
disastrous as one with too much.
Who holds all this thermostat
adjusting in the balance of
our Earth’s existence?
The ebb and flow of life
continues as natural as
the daily sunrise and set.
We can fight it, but Nature
usually comes out winners.
Roofs and dams notwithstanding.
Some of us are “luckier” than
others–more fortunate, maybe,
to have a home & be dry & warm
during the harshest storms.
We do what we can to
share with our brothers.
It is a kindergarten learning–
share your toys–
A very wet kiss the rain is now
giving the Earth!
