Green Rain Falling
Green rain falling.
Staccato dripping from gutters,
Broken by frog song,
Call and response from the pond;
Celebration of wet abundance.
Ground glistens below
Jewel encrusted leaves.
Steady patter, hour after hour.
Creek filled ditches flowing,
Flowing, flowing, where?
Frogs shelter on windows, hunting
By porch light.
Filled with liquid shadows.
Birds perch beneath the eaves,
Rainy week in June.

This is wonderful! Your photos and poem totally immersed me in your rainy world! ❤
Thank you, Eliza 😉 More rain here yesterday, and the world grows lush! We’re enjoying the coolness and good breezes today. A beautiful Sunday in June! Hope you’re well and enjoying this day, too- WG
Beautiful interpretation of this rainy week, WG. Rumor has it the sun will be returning soon. 🙂
What a feast of green-ness! Your Green Rain has me smelling that beautiful damp earth smell 🙂
Wonderful! I’m happy you can smell it too. Such a clean, vibrant fragrance in the garden. The rain has paused, but the world remains wet and blessedly cool with overcast skies. Thank you for visiting today 😉 WG
A celebration of rain…I love it!
