Stained-Glass Garden


At dawn, rain started
with a few quiet drops,
like the whisper of dandelion
seeds, sticky with wishes.
The brown, brittle grass drank.
Tall trees bent in thanks,
leaves glittering with diamonds.
Drought has made rain
more precious than sunshine.
Even weeds sigh with relief.
Cool breezes tease flowers,
drawing galaxies of laughter.
A full day’s soaking brings
a stained-glass magic to
a dry garden, where light shines
through every color and tint
transcending trouble,
crowning patience.

Note: We had rain after a long drought. Life is good. Hope everyone has a magical week, full of fun, rain or sun.
