Summer Shower



20150621_182346_resizedIn the heat of the afternoon, it was a deluge. I scrambled out onto the fire escape to place the pots of plants and flowers in prime space to catch the rain. Being careful not to slip, I moved everything and became drenched in the process. It was salvation from the heat. I stood in the torrential downpour like a pilgrim kneeling in supplication. Imagine my delight as I felt my prayers answered.
All by a Summer Shower.
