Day 170: When will it rain?

The sere earth beckons
Grass is baked to a dry crisp
Flowers bow to death

(It's been a hot, dry summer around here. Our fire escape basil needs constant watering, and the poor sapling in front of our building [planted by an ambitious public-private initiative devoted to greening NYC] has seen better days. The Long Meadow in Prospect Park looks like a dust bowl. When will it rain?)
