! ! ! A Refreshing Shower - Poem by Bob Blackwell

After rain falls, the Earth sighs,
stretches, cups both hands,
accepts, thoughts of change.

Knowledge showered gives a
start to Earths refreshment,
shows way to path of truth.

Warm sun helps feed the growth,
nourishes new thoughts for life,
helps to build new attitudes.

Scene changes, new point of view,
life changes, no stormy clouds
to spoil, no guilty feelings.

Earth bathes in truth’s elixir,
soaks in new outlook, and
becomes happy with his world.

    Sounding a bugle of Change. Superbly penned.

    Refreshing shower on the parched land
    Once again the earth in new apparel stands.
