As many of you know, California has been suffering from a horrible drought. The last couple days have been very wet, but we’re still only a little over half of average rainfall in San Francisco. To the south, like in San Jose, there’s been even less rain. Here’s my gratitude for the rain:
Hail to the spirits of storm
To the pounding ones
To the loud ones
The thunder and lightning wielders
The sonorous and the soaking
(May you visit more often)
And to the wide drinking earth
To the moist soil and the land yearning!
We give thanks to the storm powers
To the life giving rains
May we drink deeply!
