Sometimes rain arrives at just the right time.
The dreaded yellow pollen has just begun to sift out of the trees
and this rainy Monday helped clear the air.
This evening with the windows open,
the air smelled so fresh;
and the first chorus of summer insects
softly serenaded from outside.
The sunset was the most exquisite blend of violet and pink,
and the blooming redbud trees provided the perfect counterpoint.
It would appear that today's April showers have washed the rest of winter away,
