Entry for August, 2019 SugarCube’s Weekly Random Contest
Dark
Clouds in
Skies above,
Pregnant with rain.
Thunder rumbles and
Flashes of lightning split
The atmosphere all around.
Soon, precious liquid will fall on
Parched ground that has crackled, begging for
Just one drop of moisture to quench its thirst.

Summer in the South is always fickle!
Sometimes showers bless the crops daily.
And other days nature withholds
The lifeblood of the farmer.
Clear, cooling, nurturing
Heavenly droplets
A gift from God
Falling from
The sky.
Rain!


This week, write an etheree poem.

An etheree poem has 10 lines (or multiples of 10) where the syllable counts either count up or down from 10, like this

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 or 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. You can also have multiple etheree poems strung together, like this:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 OR 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

How many lines are in your poem, as long as it's a multiple of 10 and in this syllable format, is up to you. You may count up or down, as well as the subject matter is completely up to you. Since I stole this poem from the Ultimate Poetry Challenge, if you are participating in that challenge, you may use the poem you already wrote for this contest as well.
