And They Call It Rain

It came quietly this time
a drizzle of drops from the heavens
softening the soil;
easing the way for new growth.

The fowl sing a sweet song
and flutter about with renewed
interest in the day.

Dust returns to its mother earth,
mixing with water to form mud;
dried veins once creeks
begin to flourish under moist skies;
abundance will form ponds
and amphibians will have an evening chorus
all their own.

The balance of nature
on the precipice of life
can sway a few degrees
in either direction
causing drought or flood
and yet we all go on
as if One watches over
all that seems to be.

R... but the title had me thinking this might be a political comment about Republican politics.
I don't believe in politics. It's a rich man's game to guide the average man off of a cliff. I have much more faith in Santa.

Rain like prayer, cleanses the soul. Thank you, J.
