I wrote this short poem this morning for Creativity Challenge #35 from https://1sojournal.wordpress.com/author/1sojournal/.
The best gift of all
I woke up this Christmas morning;
and what miracle did I hear?
The splatter of heavy rainfall;
It’s sound so distinctive and clear.
Santa, I’m glad you got my wish list;
and thought my request worthwhile;
The downpour has revived the earth;
The flowers are sparkling in style.
You brought us the gift of water;
I wonder, were the clouds in your sack?
Did you set them free this morning?
To help alleviate a very serious lack.

Now, I need to go and check on the Christmas dinner that is slowly cooking in the oven…
Merry Christmas to one and all!
