Rain, rain and more rain
a week of rain.
Will it stop today?

Through winters snows and ice
I waited
knowing that the sun would free me.

Not yet.

This is one of those springs that farmers dread. It just keeps raining and Memorial Day is approaching. Farmers need to get into their fields to prepare it for planting, and so far it is too muddy. I have no specific reason for wanting to see the sun and some rising temperatures except that I love sitting on the back porch sipping iced tea and reading (not a past time only for the elderly, but just appreciated more by us.)
