Rain came today
tiptoeing on quiet feet, 
making its way across
yard and field and street,
then splashing joyously
in its own puddles,
drumming a parade
on the roof
and shooting fireworks 
in the sky.

The trees lifted their arms 
in celebration
and the grasses clapped their hands.
The dust of earth was banished
for a moment,
and life drank deeply.

Rain came today,
lovely, refreshing rain,
and watered my dry heart.

Leviticus 26:4 Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

Psalm 72:They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations. He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
