I am sorry for the flooding in Louisiana and the terrible loss for many. It is still amazing to me that some parts of the country have too, too much rain, and here in Colorado we are so dry. It is an arid environment and we celebrate any kind of moisture that comes our way. So often the storms come down from the mountains or from the north and stop only briefly, then move on to the eastern and southern plains. There they intensify. A friend who lives about thirty miles south, in the country, receives much more moisture than we do in the city. These past couple of days we have had rain, and this time I captured a beginning in a short video, and wrote about it. We celebrate while others bemoan the clouds and rains that doesn't stop. Point of view in our lives is always something to consider, isn't it?
Those Rainy Minutes
Late afternoon, clouds crowd the sky,
offer falling, falling drops.
Then lazy thunder plays its tune.
It’s a quick dunking of dusty leaves,
rather like the swipe of a young child’s face
Just enough to shine the face.
