Overcast and cold
Clouds hang heavy
The drumming of light rain
Against the fogged up window
Calls for coffee and cake
A warm blanket and a good book
Lost in the sound of the earth
Washing herself
I sit and sip
…thinking about roofs

    that’s how I feel when it’s raining and cold… love

    Lost in the sound of the earth
    Washing herself

    … makes it better somehow to see this purpose in rain, for who doesn’t feel better after a good cleansing shower?

    The rain tends to make the roof figure large in the picture – especially if it leaks!

  8. I LOVE this……”listening to the sounds of the earth washing herself”. Beautiful!
