The Wind's Secrets.

Why does rain smell so fair
after a long hot summer
evaporating plant oils with flair
while the soil bacteria release
musky aromatic compounds
that will fragrance the air --

and if you should imagine
you smell the rain coming
that is storm released ozone
the drifting prophetic aroma
a tell-tale wind has blown,
it's mother earth's breath -

her secrets invade our nose
