Green Rain Falling

June 3, 2015 garden in rain 001


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.

Turtle heaven,

Watery world

Filled with liquid shadows.

Birds perch beneath the eaves,



Rainy week in June.

  3. 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
