after the storm
The storm passes, leaving the rich, black topsoil soaked. The rain has provided the needed moisture to germinate the recently planted seed. City folk may talk about the weather as a matter of conversation, but in farm country the weather affects the very life and livelihood of those who choose to call it home. In the pasture the grass awakens in a startling flash of color, glowing like a rare emerald.
