We had a brief thunderstorm this afternoon. It didn’t rain long, or much, but it freshened the air and rinsed the pollen dust off everything. Afterward I walked to the park next door to see what I could see.
An American Robin and a House Sparrow were keeping company on a dripping overhead cable.
A maple leaf had let go of its lifeline.
Raindrops freshened flowers and foliage and pattered down from the trees overhead. I don’t know what these flowers are — the pink ones are on a large shrub, and the blue ones are a vine entangled in it. (If you know, please tell me!)
This web is strung horizontally between the leaves of a huge hosta. There was no one home, but as you can see the larder is full of gustatory delights…if you’re a spider, anyway.
Behind the apartment, all traces of the storm were gone.
Bowers of tiny roses climbed high into the trees, their petals already dry.
leaf light and sky shine
illuminate clear water
ripples reflect peace
Wishing you a happy Wednesday, friends.
