Out of a clear blue sky

thunder clouds roll in menacingly.

Sweet chirps and birdsong abruptly halts -

overshadowed by a low, echoing rumble.

The mercury falls as the air cools with the 

first splatters of rain blown in horizontally -

pelting windows, 

washing dust and pollen from grimy greens.

Refreshing for the moment -

 rain rain go away 

Summer sun come back and play.

I want to plant Hostas just because I love how the water beads on the leaves. Summer rain smells so nice.
