Sullen summer skies
Heavily prescient clouds
Threatening thunder
Lightening the oppression
Showering parched earth with joy

For Colleen’s poetry challenge

  2. Beautiful, Sue. This is exactly what has happened to us here in Colorado. It was so dry for the last year and little winter snows. The afternoon storms have been regularly rolling in. We’re drenched but I’m not complaining! 😀

    There’s nothing like that first ‘splat’ on the dry ground. 🙂
