Spring Rain

A morning rain trickled over the verdant field across the way.  It would be the only moisture for a month.  We wished it would have been more when we looked back at the drought-stricken summer. We were lucky to have received that sprinkle that day.

As I dread the first snow in my area, I remember how dry our summer was, and realize the selfishness of my wishes.  Bring it on, Old Man. Give it your best shot. Make it a good one while the novelty of white stuff will be received with a freshness and zeal we won't have in February.
