Christina: Mountain Showers

MOUNTAIN SHOWERS
(For Aunt Molly)

Mountains showers
the presence of light mist
upon each tree...
Mountain Showers -
I like the sound
it just sounds sweet to me...

For I live near the desert
where it is dry and
sometimes brown

When I look at the
mountain showers
I'm looking up,
not down.

I like the symbolism
the looking "up", not down -
and seeing mountain rain
erases any frown -

It's just a simple little phrase
each a little simple word
But when I see the showers
I look up, and know God heard.
