Rain Today

(back here after 2 years!)

I’m not angry at the rain
gentle creature
pitter patter
on my rooftop window

Rain, oh rain
Giver of life
Aquatic nourishment
for flora and fauna alike

Rain streaming down
outside my window
gentle creature
one of the thousand miracles of earth

Reminds me of the fortune
that is my shelter
here in my homestead
I’m content to watch the rain come down

The Mafia

we use our powers for good… we think
although
communication and the spread of ideas is essential for innovation and inspires creativity
we know
but the administration has their hands tied
and we need freedom
and for freedom
we need “need to know”

 

Late September

I stepped outside to clouds
straight out of an impressionist painting
dark ones, low in the sky
still not on the horizon
and bright, white cotton
towering above
the sun’s rays igniting
the wispy patches in between
constantly in motion
whirling, drifting
some at breakneck pace
others brooding, or swiftly sailing
across the slowly dimming sky
then upon arriving home
out my window
a curious combination
one expanding, like a puffer fish
or a balloon blown into by a clown
and others wanting to get in the mix
to mask the scene
nothing was static
and I was captivated by it all
