📁 the Wet Season (Fall & Winter)

This is an archive of prayers, prayer-poems, and songs for the Wet season (i.e., Fall & Winter) in which precipitation in the form of rain and snow provides one of the four key ingredients for the perpetuation of most life as we know it on our Earth (sun, soil, water, and air).

Click here to contribute a prayer you have written, or a transcription and/or translation of a historic prayer or song in any language, familiar or obscure, for the Wet season.
