Sidey’s weekend theme, 27.08.2010: New Beginnings
I smelled the sweetness of the rain
In the air before it came,
Bringing life back to the earth
After winter’s unhurried death.
The gentle drops fall from the clouds
Following many months of drought
And the soil drinks greedily
To deeply satisfy its thirst.
The circle of the seasons
Is about to start again
As earth maintains its journey
Of orbiting the sun.
