From lines to drops


Rains came last night and today, more predicted for tomorrow. Makes me want to sing, in the rain :)


Under my tree-roof
slanting lines of April rain

separate to drops

Delightful close-up photo. Amazing how each rain drop is slightly different. Singing in the Rain is one of my all-time favorite movies -- the music and dancing are of course great, but it's also such a funny movie!

They are scattered down that light green like jewels...and are riches in our desert. Beautiful, Mary.

Thanks, Katie :) I love close-ups like these. And I agree; Singing in the Rain is a great classic movie!

I like how you described the water droplets, Sheila. I think of them as jewel-like, too. Thank you. :)

someone turns an ear so it faces
leaves in a downpour, Java or
New York. Someone in that second
thinks (he, she) is becoming
nothing but ear, or
rain sheeting, or flashing
bright green blade -
but at that second
becomes music created
as leaves let rain
complete an aria -
no ear for opera,
this shower satisfies
thirst for
excess
