Summer Rain
Author: Capricorn


A smell of freshness now exudes
to fill my nostrils when respired,
While hungry gardens feasts on foods
from earth, to nurture as required.

Bright flowers lift their watered heads
with pride, their brilliant colours glow
as they arouse from sleep, their beds
begin to flourish as they grow.

The greenest grass looks painted on
the scene, so bright its vivid hue
Its turf spreads under skies that don
white clouds on shades of pastel blue

The sun now shyly peeks to test
if wind has blown the rain-clouds dry,
he sees all colours have been pressed
to curve an arc into the sky.

The rainbow bends through sprinkled rain
to end without a pot of gold
Yet wealth has scattered nature's lane
it's earthly treasures to unfold

Excellent and beautifully, vivid.


Great work here, life is not always full of rainbows, but as you point out, there is beauty all around, will to be shared, as we have to do, partake of it and it will be shared with us.

Beautiful and great meaning.
