. Long dry spell so hot Unpaved road sends billows sheets Dust in house__ blessed rain (Remembering when a child, one summer it was more than a month without rain....Then rain came in huge droplets...Dust would float up from the raindrops that hit the ground...When we finally got rain, it was like one of the greatest blessings from God.)

Yes Sara, like the world is in need of a good rain of the Agape, Spirit of truth right now. The world has been far too long ruled by the carnal minds of men. Lets pray for the lattar rain, that is promised to us.Smile, Agape, Moses

This brings to mind trhe Rainmaker and the diving rods. It certainly presents a picture. I like this. A drought can be one of nature's true harbingers of dread. Regards, Gerard.

Last year we had a long dry spell, this year it was too cold with only few rain. Imagine if it rains in the desert and flowers shoot up from the barren soil--a lovely picture! Nicely written Haiku, Sara...Keep your pen flowing...Gert
