first rain

The first rain of the season came this weekend. The clouds rolled in on Friday afternoon and by twilight the drops were coming down with forceful urgency- as if they had been waiting a lifetime to fall.. Waiting a Lifetime to Fall. Huge drops surrendered their hold on fleeting clouds, and fell one by one to Earth. I stood underneath the exploding sky to witness the miracle of the falling rain- the first rain of the season.

But today, three days later, the harsh sun beats down on washed rooftops and cleaner streets.

I miss the rain already.
