No Rain Today

dark grey clouds
quickly scurry north
revealing white bank of clouds
suspended over the mountains
of the mainland

here on the island
the view is always
mountains, sky and sea

faster they move now
leaving a brightness behind
that we have missed

no rain today
those clouds have blown away

    Francine, Once again, we find ourselves trapped in the Holiday Season. And, hear I am stopping by to say Hi and to wish you a Merry Christmas once again sincerely from my heart. Loving each moment I found comforting here on the soup. Thank you for any comment or support you have offered now or in the past. Love always & forever ~ PD

    That would be good news for anyone living within a hundred mile radius of my location. We received much more rain than we needed courtesy of Sandy. Good free verse write. I responded to your email. Thank you for your concern.

    Hope you weren't waiting for rain Francine, we have more than enough and I'd love to send you some. Lucky you out there in the midst of all that grandeur. How are you?

    the clouds of whether emotion churns, beneath the hair the brain do squirm, sweetest Francine does it right, though clouds of clouds the thoughts incite xox

    :) Irony. I am reading this as its raining outside and the lightening/thunder just ended (I hope) Thanks for your many kindnesses... I do tend to walk out in front of buses, don't I? Those bears. I keep Poking them, too. Your poem is so peaceful... I read it several times, like a meditation. Lovely. Hugs, Cyndi
