"Raining all over the world"

Times like these, the song, "Rainy Night in Georgia", comes to mind.
I went to sleep with the sound of rain and woke to the same.
This morning, the birds were protesting with their wake-up peeps
and shrieks instead of chirping harmoniously to greet the new day.
I mop up water that has flowed under my doors and think about times passed
when I saw houses in my area completely flooded.
I remember a few years back, seeing a family carrying out their
belongings with the water in their house nearly to their waist.
I am grateful my little flooding is manageable.
It has rained for months now so the clay ground is 'full-up'.
The rain water flows through my yard, making mini-rivers.
My dogs just look up at me as if to ask, when will it ever stop?
They don't understand, it's all part of "Paradise".

"How many times I wondered
It still comes out the same
No matter how you look at it or think of it
It's life and you just got to play the game"
