The Single Blade of Grass

Be like the single blade of grass. For she too, has been trampled on, mowed down, and hit with such bitterly cold stretches that she had to shut down to survive. Yet still she stands upright with dignity, knowing that she endures, and still she dances with the wind.

I took this picture yesterday in our backyard as I was trying to capture the rain in a single shot. Doesn’t the lawn look pathetic? Hang in there little blades of grass. More rain in the forecast to quench your thirst.

    I do hope you get our rain, here there is an amber warning for storm, wind and heavy rain. šŸ˜¦

    I’m glad the lonely blade will be drinking at last from your rain, Sandra. I still want to give you, personally, my snow for your yard.

      Mark, I wish it were that easy too! Hopefully this is just the beginning of a long stretch of torrential rain.

        I hope so. I hate to see and hear the drought-caused fires on the nightly news.

        Yeah it’s a real concern. I do hope we’ve turned a corner. Otherwise I may ask you to overnight that snow. I’ll front the postage.
