Rain in the Desert

There is a song that has a line about the desert missing the rain.

It rained here last week...I don't think the desert misses or craves the rain...It despises it. The rain soaks into the ground for a couple of inches, and creates a glutinous mud. But, as you walk you lift off this top layer of mud leaving the dry desert layer exposed. This leaves a weird trail of dry footprints among the darker mud.

The mud then drys and leaves the ground with rock hard indentations and tire and track marks. Great for busting your ankle on. Rain leaves the earth here scarred and torn.

little time to update now. Poems to put up, but no time to get on the internet.

My best to all who read, have some dark chocolate for me!
