Rain after Drought

Was there ever a smell so wonderful

as parched dry earth after rain?

That dusty, musty, mildewed smell,

dampening this desperate terrain.


Meadows, shades as desert sand

sigh and reach to grasp their share,

before the deluge ends, generously leaving

that pungent scent saturating the air.
