Would you please send us some of this? Not too much all at one time, please. I’m not Noah, and the last thing we need are floods and mudslides on top of drought. But enough. And make it a soft rain, with some breaks in between so the earth can soak it all in. A nice soft rain that will fill our reservoirs and give the dying oaks a drink . And the thirsty sequoias, which are now spitting cotton. Plus, you should see the matilija poppies out in front of the house. Nothing phases them. They’re as hardy as iron, yet they’re looking positively wan for want of water. No doubt about it: Drought.
I know our own stupidity and greed have put us in this predicament. We’ve trashed the beautiful world you gave us and are still in thrall to the Koch Brothers and Exxon oil. But you made us dumb as posts and unable to connect dots. So, maybe in addition to rain, could you you please see your way clear to fix our brains a bit as well? I’m just sayin’ . . .
Thank you and Amen
