An Optimist a day keeps depression away – a short, short story

The farmer looked up at the sky. It was blue as far as he could see.
He had the right variety of seeds. The tractor was on loan, and the workers were available. Without the rains, all preparation was useless, and there could be no planting.
He closed his eyes, ” Please let it rain!”
Someone upstairs was listening. That night it rained. It rained the whole day and continued through the night into the next day. When it finally stopped four days later, all his fields were underwater.
“You do not need a tractor, a boat would be better.” said the workers and left.
The farmer looked at his fields and said, “If not crops, maybe I can turn this into a fish pond. I can feed them the grains…..” He began planning.
