A Prayer Nudged

Finally you’ve come, to ease my parched, dry throat
As beautiful words I was whispering, inchoate
As dancing ever before my mind, like a panacea,
Desert Sonora for one, then found dreaming of Sahara…

For it has been so dry, where there should be luscious green
And even tho the wind would blow, the skies remained serene;
“beautiful days” bespoken, ‘tho silent prayers high flew
to see some heavy graying skies amidst the lovely blue.

But no, dust remained and hung heavy in the valleys
Where lush wheat fields should be taking tally
Silently and from deep within my heart then there rendered
A soulful cry to a loving God “help, I now surrender…”

“We fear of fire, we fear of thirst, we pray to see some rain…”
daily, daily, daily I would beseech this sad refrain…
“Oh Lord give us ease, but nay no dust storm days
Let it rain from great Topeka, all the way to Hays.”

The weathercaster came on screen just this very morning
And said, “we may get lucky here, have some storms a’warning…”
So just to make the game even, bring it up to par…
I gave my prayer a little nudge, and went and washed my car.

LOL Sunshine this was just so you! hehe...
If washing your car won't make it rain I don't know what will. That's Murphy's law isn't it? When you wash it...it just has to rain! Enjoyed this nudged prayer!

Whtdove, yes, we shouldn't bargain with God, but somewhere deep inside, I think he's got a sense of humor...

Pepper, TOLD YOU SO!!!,

Toe, a great from you is a good as anything from 'Deer - thank you, kind Sir!
