After the rains

Spring storm dissipates
leaves slow misting veil.
Ants scurry back to work
beneath uncurled ferns.

Trillium carpets damp earth.
White three-petal clusters
speckled by raindrops,
sit atop shiny green leaves.

Whitening clouds skirt the sky,
grey gives way to light.
Star-shaped pink laurels
turn faces to the dappled sun.

      Ah….wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could just call upon Mother Nature to send a spring rain, at our needing time, so we could refresh! So glad you enjoyed.
