A Gift for You - A Flower and A Poem


Praise the Rain

Praise the rain; the seagull dive
The curl of plant, the raven talk—
Praise the hurt, the house slack
The stand of trees, the dignity—
Praise the dark, the moon cradle
The sky fall, the bear sleep—
Praise the mist, the warrior name
The earth eclipse, the fired leap—
Praise the backwards, upward sky
The baby cry, the spirit food—
Praise canoe, the fish rush
The hole for frog, the upside-down—
Praise the day, the cloud cup
The mind flat, forget it all—

Praise crazy. Praise sad.
Praise the path on which we're led.
Praise the roads on earth and water.
Praise the eater and the eaten.
Praise beginnings; praise the end.
Praise the song and praise the singer.

Praise the rain; it brings more rain.
Praise the rain; it brings more rain.


This is indeed the season of rain and a few snow flurries.
How is the weather where you live?
Just a few days ago the chrysanthemums were still blooming in the my garden.
Yesterday we had a very unusual, early snow.
I must run outside and see how my flowers have survived.
The rain and moisture is so good for the garden.
The snow and rain with a few Christmas twinkling lights has
me in the spirit of the season.
Have a a great week, dear friends!

No snow, just lots of cold. I can definitely do without the snow!

In a normal year, moisture is not a problem here, but this year has been exceptionally dry. The earth is very thirsty. We are awaiting a bit of rain or snow this evening, and I hope we get lots.

We got both snow and rain too, Marilyn. Our first big snowfall was Saturday. It's always wonderful to see, and we need the rain very much, so I'll take them both. Your Mums in the garden are so pretty, and coming along nicely. I'm glad the twinkling lights and the rain and snow has put you in the Christmas spirit.

Have a blessed week, dear Marilyn.
