June 30, 2015 Monsoons

The rain that we wanted

finally is here.

It finally is raining.

Isn't it great?

The monsoons are here.

Let's all celebrate.

    I thought you'd like to know that the monsoons are here in Tucson.  One report I read said they had come 15 days early this year.  This is a great relief after the predictions were that the rains would be late.  Maybe that means the season will be long this year.  
       My tomato plants are enjoying the rain and I'm enjoying eating lots of tomatoes in salads and on pasta.  The small cherry tomatoes make a great snack all by themselves.  
      OK,  tomatoes are usually thought of as being red, so for your poetry challenge can you write a poem about red today?  Or just try writing a three line poem today.  (Did you follow my logic on that challenge?)  What ever you do today, celebrate your writing.

    Poetry for children is a celebration.

  2. I like the "extra cheery" line. Well done on this acrostic. Rhyming the first and last line is very elegant. Nice job.

    1. Thanks, Joy. I'm learning tips from the "Princess of Poetry."
