I write what I feel…

Spring Rain


Sidey’s weekend theme, 27.08.2010: New Beginnings

Spring Rain

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.

  1. I’m waiting to walk in the rain again and splash in puddles.
    Morning Adee 🙂


  2. Awesome Adee…I love walking in the rain and the last stanza in your poem says it all…the circle of the seasons. Loved it. Happy day dear one xx


  3. Perfect 🙂

    (I thought I smelled it early this morning …)


  4. lovely one, I can smell the rain in it, just wish we could have a shower or two – like you I’d like to damp down the dust now


  5. there is comfort in knowing that the seasons come round again…much as they do in our lives…and after the long dry it is great to stand in the rain and be nourished…


  6. Adee,
    Wow, such powerful, emotive words. Will have to come back and look through other things when I have time. Amazing stuff.


  7. Oh nice! The picture is perfect for the poem, too! I love the spring rains! We’re getting ready for fall, which is my favorite!
