Rainy Season, at Last!

Rainy Season, at Last!

The drought has been demoted to third or fourth page news
since storm clouds started gathering in various somber hues.
The headlines now predict the news that storms will soon be coming,
and those athirst for moisture will soon find raindrops drumming.
Rivulets with ebb and flow and gutters will be brimming
and they might as well close down the school. The kids will all be swimming!

Prompt words today are athirst, demoted, ebb, flow and headline.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      The swimsuit of the little girl standing up in the innertube? She was Jerelyn Shimer and lived kitty-corner across the street from me. I don’t think I’d look as cute in it as she does, Laurie…

    The one in the bathing cap. I went through a period of a few years when I had horrible earaches. Came close to having to have a mastoid operation. They ended when I had my tonsils out. But, that’s why I had to wear a swim cap…and earplugs…when I swam.
