Painting the Porch

It is mid-summer and the old woman has not seen a single raindrop in several weeks.  She tries to conjure the look, the sound, the feel of rain, but only the sun beats its rhythm all around her.  With not even a thunderstorm in the forecast, she searches the sky in vain.   As she glances west,  the evening sky splashes her with its own gift!

‘sweeping the porch
bright prints of raindrops
followed by splashes’
