    1. Have watched those heavy raindrops hit a hard earth making a slapping sound. Glad you liked it and thanks for the comment.

  2. I do like the bitterness I read in it, but is so interesting - if you were a farmer you might revere this moment...like it very much.

    1. had not thought of the bitterness till you pointed it out in the comment. Grew up on a farm in a farming community. Great respect for rain.
