The Rains

The dry, dead plants stubbornly clung to each other while threatening those still alive. Agnes carefully pulled each drought ravaged plant away from the healthy ones, preserving the life within them.

Finally clearing away the remains, she exposed the solid foundation which held each plant. Agnes knew that this is where hope lives, deep within the roots. 

As she looked to the heavens, the sustaining rains finally came down in affirmation of life.

  1. Well, this came from the heart … as I know you have been struggling all week to do just that. Your words paint pictures in our minds, McGuffy … nobody says it better than you …

  2. Excellent post. It is finally raining for real today and not just drizzling. Hope some of our plants that look dry and dead aren't and that this rain will nourish them. Thanks for visiting on our 2nd blogoversary to celebrate with us! We so appreciate your friendship and comments.
