First we had temps in the 80's and we were getting a bit spoiled - starting to settle into the notion of Spring. Mother Nature had different ideas and set us straight; we've now had wind, rain and cold (33 degrees) for several days. Tomorrow it's back to sunny and 70's! ;-)
" ...
the rain
spoke to me
slowly, saying,
what joy
to come falling
out of the brisk cloud,
to be happy again
in a new way
on the earth!
... "

Last Night the Rain Spoke to Me

  1. lovely poem...we have had on again off again temps and rain. chilly and damp here today.

  2. I wish I had more time to spend on blogs....but wanted to say "hi" and wish you all the best with your new grandchild! I think the grandmother "hat" is the most becoming on you!
