Cleansing Rain

Autumn rains lasting for days

Covering the land with mist

Cleansing under cloudy haze

Rising pollen, now dismissed

 

Harvest pausing, farmers wait

Parking soybeans, left to take

Drying cornstalks, know their fate

Standing ready, combines brake

 

Creeks filling, slowly at first

Running water, sent ahead

Suspending reservoirs’ thirst

Pausing for now, winter’s dread

 

Nature’s perfect cycle breathes

Singing praises to the Lord

Watching as autumn unsheathes

Waking when spring comes aboard

    • Thanks for sharing your memory of growing up on a farm. While I grew up in the city, much of my teaching was done in more rural places. Living in Ohio now, I enjoy driving by the nearby fields of corn and soybeans, ready for harvest.
