Rumbling, tumbling o'er the vacant void

Booming, blue-black vision grand

scattering splattering welcome rains

pounding the parched red desert sand

A brief respite after years without,

not a drought, out here it's the status quo.

A million liquid sparks of life

Stirring the seeds in the soil below

It's natures grand renewel plan

A coloured cloak to clothe the plains

Billy button, Yellow top

A florid carpeted terrain

Paper daisy, Parrot pea

A brief

all too soon to fade away

as once again the hot sun reigns
