With Silver Liquid Drops

Boy have I been a slacker lately. I can’t honesty claim that I’ve been unusually busy, but I’ve been winding down from the stress in past months — reading, doing crafts, etc. — and it’s been terrific. But I’m back, hopefully more regularly now. And I also have some new cards to post on Etsy: starting Saturday I hope to do 4-5/week for the rest of the month. We shall see.

It’s raining very hard here right now, as it has many times in the last two weeks, and here’s how I feel about that.

April Rain Song

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night—

And I love the rain.
