Cycles

Written by: Bill Lindenmuth

Soft rain falling on a drought filled brow 
Earth rejoices here and now 
Nourished by the slow downpour 
Rising up on each lake shore 
Flowers glisten in subdued light 
Branches reaching 
For day and night 
Cascading  sheets from each rain cloud 
Grass blades sharpen well endowed 
Gentle light now parts the sky 
Captures  every watching eye 
Patches sweet of baby blue 
Rain clouds dance away from you 
The day continues bathed in light 
Water beads they now take flight 
Feel the dampness of the air 
Humid memories we all share
