...and the rain came

Wonderful glorious rain!!!!
It washed the trees,
gave the plant life a drink
and settled the dust.
We got a quarter inch,
but a desperately needed quarter it was.
It flooded the windshield
and I thought,
I won't have to wash my car!
It did not stay long.
It traveled on to bless more people.

Rain here, too. Much was desired and it came down as such. One half inch. The lawn and garden slurped it up.
