Bless the rain
Tho’ it ruined the bar-be-que.
Thank the rain
for watering the garden and one less chore on a busy day.
Honor the rain
tho’ it makes my hair go straight as string
and there’s nothing I can do about it.
Praise the rain
for green healthy plants
and puddles where fairies dance.
Thank you rain
and baby deer
and enough grain stores to feed us through the year.
Listen to the rain
as it drips on trees
and the roof
and the tin water bowl by the garden gate.
Smell the rain
as the force of the drops
sends a thousand scents of the Earth into the air.
Be relaxed by the rain,
gentle as a butterfly, on a peaceful summer day.
