    haying - revisited

    the timothy is knee high
    it whips about my legs
    dark clouds skim the mountain
    the soft sound of thunder
    bounces down through the canyon
    to rumble out gently over the meadow
    the edge of the rain is at the treeline
    it slowly descends as a subtle
    iridescent canvas
    the first drops make dark circles
    on my shirt
    i start for the truck
    the air is fresh
    i sit and watch
    as the rain captures the valley

    Love the way the rain takes all the dust away and makes life clean again . I love to walk in the rain and love this poem Marie

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
