Rain Drops and Roses
This morning we woke up to the nicest rain storm.
It was nice to sit and drink hot coffee and watch the rain.
Then the clouds moved on and the day became bright and sunny,
though now it looks more like a puffy cloud day.
Rain in June this time of year as my grandmother would say,
"Scarce as hen's teeth." Rain left my flowers looking fresh, and clean
and like paintings, if I painted.
I am still obsessed with raindrops. I love taking pictures
of them because looking at life through a rain drop just tickles me.
I love seeing the different colors reflected in the drop.
I love seeing the drop as it changes and shifts if there is a
tiny breeze, or a dog walking by, trying to see what I am
staring at so closely with that thing in front of my face.
I love the way the drops just sit there, yet looking for all the
world like diamonds that would decorate any beautiful woman.
I love how the drops just hang off the leaves,
suspended in time.
Today I am happy for the rain, I am glad I can wear shorts
because it is not cold. Last night I was walking and even though
the wind was blowing and the clouds were dark. I could feel the
warmth of summer hidden in the cool. I know that soon, it
will be warm all of the time and I will wish for these cool days.
Now, real life happens, my laundry baskets are filled to overflowing,
my house needs to be vacuumed, the furniture dusted and floors mopped.
Such is life on Monday, but I just had to stop and photograph,
rain drops on roses,
Have a lovely Monday,
