Arctic storm descends ...
Southern California rain
saturates dry ground

washing everything
trees, grass, flowers, houses, cars ...
air feels brisk, smells clean

animals scurry
seeking places to escape ...
watching warily


Ms. Kitty dines 'in'
near French Doors (for quick escape)
... Molly in kitchen

behind 'doggie' gate
watches ... wondering just when
she can play outside

without the 'wet' stuph
falling from the sky today ...
'routines' disrupted

Thought for Today
“Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.”
Langston Hughes
