Nature’s upper hand

Nature’s upper hand

   Notice so soon
         after the drought
   the long weeks
         without rain
   how soon the grass
         has returned to green
   One evening
         the heavens opened
   with a sudden storm
         now the coarse dry fields  
   we walked across
         are back to lush
   pasture as though
         the past had never been
