Drought No More





Crackling thunder rumbles
Zigzagging fingers fire
Flying through tumults
Of storm cloud strewn sky

Giant drops plopping
In myriad wild flowers
Raising thirsty petals
Heavenward

Lifting little leaves
In praising poses
To the One Glorious God
Who sends refreshing rain

Which places puddles
Across parched earth
Delightfully dripping
Wind driven wonder

Rivulets reviving, renewing
Hope
In the mountain meadow
Montane of our hearts.
In Colorado we have had serious drought for probably 12 of the last 13 years now. To see the downpours of the past few days has touched something deep inside of me and triggered praises and release.
A note - montane is relating to mountain elevation and is just below alpine, that's where we live!

Hi Marijo -

You expressed, "Who sends refreshing rain..."

GOD is "the fountain of living waters,..."
Jeremiah 2:13 - KJV

Glory to His awesome name!
