Another grey and rainy day

Rivers and lakes running above flood stages
With more rain forecasted
Trees are standing lush and full
Our green grass is ten foot tall!

Morning sun peeks out among
Dark rain clouds
Out over shadows
Framing just a small corner
Of these Ozark eastern skies!

Through these timbered woods
Echoes sound out loudly
And suddenly
This morning’s silence
Is broken and gives way
To our neighborly Canada Geese calls
Awake now and flying out
Over the cove’s high waters
Toward the dam site!

Our Grey Ozark squirrels
Playfully scampering about
And sitting out
On their favorite
Oak tree-top porch
Where is my morning tea?
