September rain

Welcome September

Here is a sheet of Autumn paper for you to copy to your computer
and use in your art if you want to. It's from a set I purchased from Artella.

September Rain

The first rains came in the middle of the night.
Monsoons giving the desert a drink.
Our hard dry land soaked it up.
Brutal hot sun, little moisture this year
and now a hurricane.....

Jimena's coming up from Cabo through the sea of Cortez
She should hit us this weekend.
According to the news she'll cause flooding or nothing.
Pray there will be relief from the heat
and a cooling trend.

Enjoy September
where ever you are.


  1. That is beautiful. I love the vivid orange. Your text September Rain is awesome. I only wish we had rain. Still muggy and hot over here. Very nice and thank you. I did copy the orange paper and saving it for later use. Happy September.

  2. Hi how are you?

    I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not leave you a comment.

    I too have a blog that I use out of Southern California here in San Diego.

    Mostly it is a collection of artistic expression, and I have many friends with the same interests, maybe you can become my friend, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay.

    Well I hope to hear from you soon, and or read about you….LOL


  3. Hi Gemma, thank you for the copy. I so enjoy all your writing. it lifts my sorrow of loss of summer. I am learning to re energize my self to the colder side of our life. I come alive in spring and hibernate in winter.
    Many blessings

  4. I am praying for gentle, cooling rain - light showers that cool, bring relief and put out fires...
    Wishing you a happy September, Gemma.

  5. What a beautiful sheet of paper! You are so sweet, Gemma!

  11. Gemma,

    My comments never show up anymore! What am I doing wrong? Anyway, I wanted to say that I have loved the Sea of Cortez ever since I read the Peter Benchley book "The Girl From the Sea of Cortez" and saw a Sea of Cortez exhibit at the Moterey Bay Aquarium. I wonder if it is as magical as they say it is.
