this day it rains.
not the usual oklahoma rain. of wind and fury and hail and tornadoes.
this rainy day is a gift.
life giving rain.
falling straight down!
unheard of in my state.
i have my big window open all the way.
the little lamps are lighted.
the room is cozy and inviting.
it was a bit of a bad night for me.
there are still those.
but this one
followed by this gift . . .
perhaps that’s what makes gifts so special.
if it weren’t for the darker hour
we couldn’t appreciate the light.
and the light of this day is silvery and watery . . .
the gift of much needed rain.
the birds are quiet.
we’re all cozy in our nest.
the wren house is especially fine.
only the sound of the rain.
and my happy soul!
til soon old bean.
