The downpour brings on delicious memories

Out of the blue comes the downpour
drenching the savannah’s brown dominance
turning the bleak to green translucence.

The rain-cooled earth emits
delicious fragrance
that spreads all over the place
like a mother’s endless
enveloping love, and grace.

Likewise, memories
of long past years
fill my consciousness
the days of innocence and experience
faces, voices and attitudes
freedom from irksome inanities,

bring on a sparkling smile
even as the rain-carried vigor
gives the earth a fresh start,
a new joy making the gift
of life more precious, less sad.

First Place winner in Spidey's Weekly Poetry Contest- January, 2009.
