Flowers Need Rain

I read recently

this season isn’t for us;

it’s for the bears and the bees,

the birds and the trees –

to shed and to slumber,

to rest and reground.

Too much sun

and we’d be scorched and withered.

The flowers need rain and


need to rest.

And while some days are heavy and dark,

and while some days we are worn and weathered,

what better way to recognize

when everything we’ve numbed

begins to thaw,

when we can feel

the relief

of it all


Title inspired by the song "Flowers Need Rain" by Banx and Ranx
