IMG_0656the smell of rain comes before pelting of drops

crepe myrtle branches whip, scattering white blooms like snowflakes

pattering percussion crescendos to drumroll of thunder

sheets of water bend tree limbs

showers slow to a whisper

slowly, quiet returns

puddles glisten

cooling air offers respite

wilted fern and rose revive
