After the rain


IMG_3711_trim

Clouds scud
through the blue-grey skies
making haste slowly
towards a new destination.

Mist rises over
the distant mountains
borne upon a
gentle breeze.

The very last
straggling raindrops
fall to the earth
in a desultory fashion.

Steam rises from
the damp earth
warmed by the rays
of the just revealed sun.

Drops of water
lie shakily suspended
on fresh washed
green leaves

Butterflies emerge
from their hiding place
ready to take flight
amidst the flowers again.

And a faded rainbow
stretches across the sky
nature’s benediction
for this fresh new world.
