A Storm is on the Way


The air feels thick, the breeze is from the east.
I expect rain.
I long for rain.






We are cloud watchers.

We watch the birds and the bugs.

What are the spiders doing?

Will we get rain?

We watch the fish in the ponds.

We need rain..

The storm could go around us. I have work to do. The sunflowers need to be weeded and thinned and mulched.

The sun is hot and the air so humid.

We just need rain.

The Brown Thrashers are not paying any attention to the approaching storm. They want to nest.

I need rain.

Baby Robin wants worms.

Just out of the nest.

Drama on the deck.

He is too scared to fly again.

Mom and Dad keep watch and bring food.

The wind shifted back to the south.

The storm went around us.

Sunbeams at sunset.

Maybe tomorrow we will get rain.

It's been a week since this post, and today we are expecting a storm again. I see the weather change from hour to hour here.

I want to comment on how lovely your clouds, coy, birds (the birds wings in mid-flight are extraordinary), and sunbeams are, thank you for such lovely ways of sharing your thoughts.
