Raining Again

It’s raining again,
coming down hard,
it runs in the gutters
and puddles the yard.
People mutter and mumble,
beginning to doubt
(despite what they say)
that we’re suffering a drought.

    Just like it is here this morning. Definitely no drought.

    California has been in a drought since my childhood, they say.

    While we are not as bad as other areas one of our big rivers is the lowest it has been in 100 years.

    Simply because there is rain coming down, does not mean the ground is quenched. But the ground adjusts too, often faster than ourselves…

    I make no judgement though. It’s a cute poem, and it’s so realistic. Thank you for sharing

      The verse was intended as a bit of fun, not to be taken too seriously, although of course drought is a serious issue. Fortunately I don’t live in the worst effected area of the UK, although we have had a long spell of dry weather and reserviours etc are low.

        I thought you meant it in a playful manner. Over here across the Pond, up until last week, our ground was so dry that people had blackened grass in their lawns and dust clouds. NOT normal early April weather for Northeast New York…. (normally April is the moth of mud)
