Blessed Rain

Carol A. Hand


swear I can feel

the tension building among

thirsty trees and plants anxiously waiting

for life-giving rain to bless their day – at last

I breathe a sigh of relief as healing drops

finally begin to

About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

    What an inspirational piece Carol. We all have our own “Rain” , wouldn’t you agree?
    I like to one form of “rain” is when I stand parched in a emotional desert void of any compassion, understanding or love. Like a refreshing salve, one small act of kindness, begins the healing process far beyond any superficial wounds, deep into the root that is my very soul., 🙂 peace to you my friend.

    In soggy South Florida where I live, the plants will have little complaining.

  8. A moment’s beauty captured here, just as a raindrop before it shatters upon the flower petal. Lovely!
