The original posting date for this image was November 19th of 2008. It was my 3rd post and had 2 comments and one was Laura Jayne of Poems Poetry and Prose. Through Laura Jayne it was my first introduction to sites that prompt writing topics.
It had been dry for weeks. The humidity caused the blowing dust to stick to my skin and form a mud paste like I made when I was a child. The musky smell told me something was about to change. Shortly after the release of the shutter, I was vindicated. The rain began with a soft gentle cleansing and the steam rising from the field told me that the tension had been released. The grasses, once dry and brittle, now could live another day. The old granary now had a new complexion, moist, smooth and glistening. I repacked my equipment, turned to survey the revived landscape and breathe in one more time, then left with a renewed sense of knowing that it was going to be a beautiful day.
