the first rain

I created the following story and treasury for Etsy’s Trendsetting Treasury Team’s 107th  Scavenger Hunt… as always, I couldn’t resist a wonderful set of 15 choice chosen words…

………my story and treasury were inspired by Katerina’s lovely 15 chosen words: Cozy, Color, Fire, Welfare, Vital, Rain, Rough, Nostalgic, Animal, Building, Hands, Texture, Hospitality, Earth (or soil), Plant

“the first rain”

she loved to open the windows
and breathe in the freshness of the first RAIN of fall
sitting in her COZY window seat
by the FIRE


on rainy days
she always wondered about the ANIMALS
she was concerned about their WELFARE
did they find shelter underneath a tree?
did a generous overhang of a BUILDING extend it’s HOSPITALITY?
how did they keep dry?


she had always loved the rain
it made her feel NOSTALGIC
the rain had always
transformed the dry summer days
and she would wake to find
a wet world
adorned with glittering drops
of the liquid
that was so VITAL to life
tiny globes
sparkling with the COLOR of sunlight


she loved to catch
the rain in her HANDS

she loved the ROUGH TEXTURE
of the very few first drops
on the EARTH
PLANTING random wet spots
on the parched soil of summer
