July 13/10: Summer Rain


Summer Rain, originally uploaded by susanvg.
Distant rumbles announce the coming storm
The sky darkens
Rain, first light then pounding
A waterfall rushes from the roof
Cascading to the ground
Splashing into the pool that wasn't there before
Rivulets race downhill to the street
Summer rain

  1. Your photos of late are so integral to your descriptions. I like your poem about the heavy rain. We have a roof waterfall when it rains hard here, too!

  4. Lovely poem to go with the picture! I am wishing for some rain here now. It's been 3 dry weeks of intense heat, very unusual, and everything and everybody feels a bit dehydrated by now. It was really refreshing to see this photo and read your beautiful poem today.
