When It Rains...



 
When it rains kitchens become havens of slower, simpler joys
Tea and cookie celebrations; mom with little girls and boys
Supper salad veggie-ventures; rainbow-splashes in a dish
Upsy-daisy little fellow, eat as much joy as you wish



Pitter-patter, chitter-chatter, look, a hummingbird, that’s cool
Diamonds dripping, dancing slipping to a green-leaf garden pool
Afternoon is like a tune out of an old-time picture-show



When the sky unchains a strain of plush percussion, low then high
Kitchens like a midday beacon beckon loved ones to stop by
Humble home-sweet-home oasis graces lips with laughter’s vim
While outside a crooner traces twig and sprig with nature’s hymn



Silver sliver of a river quivers on each frond and flow’r
Wakens wilted wisps with heaven’s life-anointed mercy-show’r
Kitchen windows, doors swing open to welcome songs from the sky
Earth is like an Eden jeweled with glass rhinestone run awry

Very little equals the joy of listening to the music of a much-needed rain...
while dabbling in culinary arts!

  1. A delight brought to life. It was a moment like this that gave birth to a chef. (My daughter)
