Renewing

Listen to the tap…tap…tapping; the music of falling rain. Sky rinses out it’s watering cans; It’s sprinklers are the clouds. Gaia’s children are thirsty; roots stretch and heartily drink. Gardeners collect water for the drier days; the children drink. Rain barrels freshly filled; gardens will flourish; grateful for the rain. When it’s all over; plant bellies full; time to move on, to the clouds. All life needs water to replenish itself; happy to oblige, are clouds. Nothing survives without such refreshment; life needs a drink. When heavens display a temper; be glad that there’s rain. Celebrate the rain, when the clouds of life roll in; your spirit needs a drink.

We can live without almost anything except air and water. "life needs a drink." this is for sure, in more than one way!
