Dripping rain

All was silent as before β€”
All silent save the dripping rain.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

(a rain soaked japanese maple / Julie Cook / 2015)

Leaves latent in falling, droop sadly in the early January cold
As a saturated mantle cloaks limbs yielding under a weighty heavy load

Where does the sun hide during a winter so dull and grey?
Does she shed her tears hidden far away?

Rain falls like dew drops steadily through the cold monochromatic sky
As all living creatures huddle for warmth in attempts of staying dry

The liquid crystal orbs trickle downward as if a fallen tear
While the pages of a calendar signal yet another passing year.

  2. We have rain today as well Julie! Nice to have the rain here, we are short on rainfall for last year 2014. Rain tomorrow too then really cold midweek! Love your Japanese Maple tree pictures!! Happy Weekend! πŸ™‚

    • it’s thick as pea soup!!! I had to drive to down to Griffin early this morning to take Martha down to 75 in order to meet her friend she was riding home with to West Palm. The lady drops Martha off in Griffin for me to pick up then she travel on to Alpharetta—then we turn around a week later taking her back.
      I could barely see the end of my car!!
      Now I’m crashing on the couch watching the Florida game as I don’t I’ve sat down since Thanksgiving πŸ™‚
      Now for life to settle back down to “normal”
      lots of hugs and love Michael—Julie

    Lovely photos and words, thank you!

  4. Another stellar post. The imagery in your words was fabulous as were your photographic images. It was very drippy all day here yesterday and into the night. The day before it was drippy early on and it was freezing rain so we had some tiny icicles formed by the drips. Will post a photo of that soon. I pray you’ve had a good day. Love and hugs, N ❀ πŸ™‚
