Rainbow Promise

He has announced his arrival. She waits,
Listening to the thunder cracking through
the layers of air. Looking at the lightning,
brightening and frightening the darkness away,
Lapping up the sweet petrichor that comes her way.
He gushes and rushes down to meet her.
In warm welcome, she opens up
to quench her unsatisfied thirst.
The twain meet and a silence follows,
As thick as the mist that envelops this inexplicable gloom.
Emotions flood the watery lane...
His constant showers drench her very soul...
New life awakens as old lives are cleansed, refreshed.
The earth has had her fill...
For now...
Drip... drip... drip...
Slowly the gentleman rain recedes...
He will come...yet meet her...
With this rainbow promise, they part...

Beautiful. Love the personification and the imagery of the "thunder cracking through the layers of air". And I just learned a new valuable word "sweet petrichor". Well captured delightful scene. A fave.

So many kinds of sweetness, Jo. : ) This is a great poem. Extra bonus for "petrichor" - I love that word. As we reach toward the end of a northern hemisphere winter, it seems all the better.
