rain

the land here is thirsty
today's rain feels right.
 yesterday wendy found 
a bit of thaw
 i tried to photograph
reflections
 but she had to drink
precisely there
~~~
this is one of three hides i saw
on the dry roadside.
i am grateful, 
i say, 
for today's rain.

we still need lots more rain to catch up from the summer drought. believe it or not it was in the mid 80s here today. i had the heat on this morning and am resisting turning on the a/c this afternoon.

deanna, we haven't had drought up here, but the weather is so strange. i worry when things are so out of whack. lF tells me she has all our snow in anchorage, though!

Deer hide? Just there... on the side of the road?
I, too am wondering and worrying about these whacky weather patterns.

Velma said...

jude, snow is poor man's fertilizer, and you're right.
