Smell of Summer’s Rain

Smell of Summer’s Rain

Dew sprinkled drops onto blades
of grass on the lawn.
Fresh breeze blows in
the open window.

The panes pitter and patter
into a song.
Rain falling faster and stronger
til there’s a shield of showering
blinds the view.

Ants try to escape inside,
they are met by the cat’s paw.
Garden zinnias welcome
this needed moisture.

Reflective drops roll down,
carrying prisms of multicolors
inside them on the glass
of the storm door.

The rainfall stops
as fast as it begun.
I smell Summer’s beginning.
