Rain Clouds Gather - Inspirational

A Change In The Weather


A Storm Approaches

The billowing clouds form overhead

A storm approaches
Little ones in bed

Thunder rolls and the sky flashes it's light
Until the rain falls
And daylight calls

Soft beams of orange appear over the horizon
The dawn meets another day
The storm clouds are far away

When the soil is thirsty and the flowers droop their heads
The rain clouds will reappear
To drench the flower beds.

Earth Delights In A Shower Of Rain


Rain or sunshine - Each Is Good

Have you noticed that some people are effected by the weather , especially on vacation.

Whether it rains or it is a sunny day, there is always good in both weather conditions. I love it when it is raining as I can catch up on indoor activities, like baking, sewing and other neglected projects.

My late mother-in-law used to help run hotels, with her husband. Many times she was asked what she had done to the weather, to which she replied calmly, that she could change many things, but that the weather conditions, were out of her control!

In summer when you go on a vacation and the weather conditions change and it is not favourable for the beach, an alternative plan, would be to head off and browse the shops for gifts to take home, or visit a historical site that is under cover.

Anyway rain or shine..it is all good as far as I am concerned.

Are you affected by the weather?

Earth Waits For The Rain

The clouds gather together before the storm
Trees shiver and rustle, a calf stands forlorn

Earth waits expectantly for the rain
Drinking in the drops
Yes, there's water again

Gushing through the gorges
Dancing down the drains
Piercing the parched earth
Giving rise to life again

Thanking God for the rain
And the abundant crops of grain
Banishing the drought
And alleviating the pain.

Where Feet May Fail

Thanks Peggy. Hope you were able to get your outside work done after the rain. Keep well and safe.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 25, 2020:

We had just set up our power washing machine and had planned to do some outside work this afternoon when an unexpected thunderstorm cropped up. So we will try again tomorrow. It was bright and sunny a couple of hours later.

Your poetry was lovely, and as always, I enjoy viewing your artwork.

Thanks Kathy. We also love the rain on our roof. Thunderstorms can be quite amazing, as long as one is in bed safe and secure.

Very beautiful creation

Kathy Henderson from Pa on April 08, 2020:

We had a delightful thunderstorm here in the wee hours of the morning. While it awakened me, a just lay there in the majesty of the way it presented a grand burst of light into our bedroom. I found it peaceful even though it rumbled pouncing the roof with large drops and hail. Still, their rhythmic presentation lulled me back to sleep.

There is always a good alternative on vacation to appreciate the weather and its importance while experiencing different things. Witnessing a storm roll in beyond the waves has its own allure and beauty making it all part of the ambiance of nature.
