A Little Could Be Enough

The yard has become crunchy as the grasses dried

from the lack of rain filled skies. We soak up the sun.

Lounge in the pool. Have summer fun.

All the while, in the back of our mind, we pray for some rain.

A little at a time. Something to hydrate the parched fields.

Sprinkle the flowers. Create a few puddles. Wash the car.

Just a little. A sprinkle or two. Wet the land. Soak our hand.

Keep us from drying up. Just something. A little could be enough.
