On a rainy Sunday, I walk through wet grass
and color rises up to greet me.
Robin's Egg blue,
and Rose Campion
Pale Milkweed Pink
and Black-eyed Susan yellow.
Sweet white fleabane bends in the cool breeze
that followed the storm to these northern hills,
and the crimson stems of wild raspberry blossoms
glow against verdant green leaves.
Green cedar berries drip rain water onto the earth,
and wild mint pushes up through the field grasses
at the edge of the woods.
St. Johnswort lifts herself brightly along the treeline,
and mullein leaves shine,
Even the pale pink bindweed
is pretty after a rain.
Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you color and light.
