challenge #2

my challenge from disjointed rhyme for this month was to include in a poem the word “petrichor” which means the smell of the earth after it has rained. this is what i came up with!

Petrichor, the smell of the earth after rain
Where before raindrops fell
Yet now there is just soil
Steam comes off the mountains
And the air smells fresh
When the earth is cleaned
And sparkles in the sun
As people merge from doorways
To enjoy what we take for granted
On a beautiful summers day.
