Rain Clouds

by Miriam Hurdle

Yearlong drought, harsh dry air.

Grass turned golden brown, flowers shrunk.

Water rationing!

Throat burning, nostrils bleeding.

Humidifier needed.

Let the grass be golden brown,

We are in the Golden State, they say.

Wait! What a sight!

Rain clouds are forming, dark and heavy.

Will it rain?

Wonderful it would be, if the clouds grow heavy.

Down, down, they fall, rain for us, they pour!

  1. Looks like you are deeply connected to nature ( keeping in mind the previous poems as well). Nothing could notice the shade of brown of the grass except care. Nice.

  2. We watch nature video on different channels every night, made by BBC, National Geographic, etc. Yes, I love nature and care about nature. You’re very observant! Thank you.
