AFTERNOON RAINSTORMS ~~ SANDPOINT, IDAHO~~


The Rains come in Currents
Like Waves on a Beach

With such Unexpected Pleasure
That's just out of Reach



They come on so softly
Like a bird in Free Fall

Hands reaching for Raindrops
Catching nothing at All


Lasting only a Moment
Like a Fleeting Embrace

The Drops make a Memory 
On a Child's Upturned Face



Have a beautiful day ~ dear friends.

  1. It rains a lot where we live on the west coast of British Columbia and it doesn't bother me a bit except for when it rains all of June.
    I embrace the rain and it encourages me to bake or to stew or make anything warm, comforting and delicious. Plus it makes our rain forest green, green, green.
    The last shot is my favorite.
