When Deborah sent us this new poem, we were thrilled for many reasons. Everyone loves the smell of fresh rain, especially after a dry spell, but most people don’t know there’s a word for that unforgettable fragrance: “Petrichor”. Some of our ZenGarden.club staff had discovered this word back in early summer and were enchanted by it. Then came Deborah’s poem. What an example of synchronicity! As we were researching pictures for the poem we ran across another wonderful word for all you writers/gardeners/lovers of words: “”Pluviophile”.
Thanks you Deborah, for such a timely and perfect poem.
