Lightning in the Sky

I know we need the rain. I live in the forest where the threat of fire is always something to be aware of. This spring has been the first time in the almost three years I’ve lived here that we aren’t in a drought. Today it’s been raining on and off, but mostly on, for ten hours with no end in sight if you look at the weather app. I tried unsuccessfully to capture the ⚡️⚡️lightning bolts earlier this week and again tonight. These are the best of the attempts.

Walking and talking (poetry in nature)

Walking and talking

enjoying the path,

enjoying the cool fall air,

the leaves filtering daylight

colors and light changing with each step.

Stopping by the creek

listening to the water

listening to your description

of whirling water followed by calm

a metaphor for life

But mostly enjoying the company
