Carpe Diem Summer Challenge + The Tuesday Platform: Midsummer Rain

A prairie rainstorm
In the middle of summer
Slow and lumbering
Meanders across the land
Shrouded in dark cloud cover


This poem is part of the Grover series, honoring the first place I've ever felt like I could call home since childhood. I don't feel like a temporary tenant when I'm there, I feel like this is where I live.
If you'd like to read more of my Ornery Poetry (as Grover calls it) please visit me at Poetry of the Netherworld.

This poem has earned the Cactus Clem Seal of Approval!
Cactus Clem sez: "I shore do like when it rains! As a Cactus Man or may be a Man Cactus, I am always thirsty!"
