scent of rain

sweet and heady and full

water filling in space until the surfaces

the indentations and grooves

all the cracks and crags are filled to the brim

scent after rain is gentle

it lingers and moves in a way 

that only it can do

mixed with dirt and wind that has died down

mixed with plants that have absorbed all they could

mixed with grass and dry leaves rehydrated

and yet the best part is the sun that peeks out to warm

on an otherwise cool and blustery day

scent of rain intensified

cooked through and lifts the spirits 

upward in
