Spring Storms

A night of restlessness.
Stormy, swirling skies, lightening bolts all around.
The morning mists, quietly gather and gently wrap the rain-soaked earth.



Morning Mist

In the morning, skies so gray,
Before the sun lights up the day,
I chanced upon a morning mist
That left the leaves and grasstips kissed
With the aqua of the dew,
It left a feeling with me, too
Something old and something new;
Something that comes with the mist again,
Never what, but always when.

The morning after a rain it always looks so wonderfully fresh out there. We had our torrential rain a few days ago. Lovely post as always Jo.

Once again, the perfect photo and verse! I really love mornings like this, because there's just something about the feeling in the air...

I hope you didn't have any damage from the storms and that your morning was as pretty as the poem.

I always love it outside after a storm. Everything is so clean and refreshed. Have a wonderful Easter!

Hi Jo!
We could sure use some of your moisture...we're really hurting for rain. My brother in law dug down 5 feet while burying our old barn foundation and as the old timers around here say...'it's drier than a popcorn fart!' This has been the driest and coolest spring I've seen. I hope the rest of this week is nice and sunny for you.
