Between raindrops


















the sky hangs close
a blanket wrapped about us
spun in greys and blues

her shining hazel eyes
carry me
to early years —

small upturned face
eyes and mouth blinking open
catching treasured drops
wordlessly

The way your words and pictures work together; the intensity and momentariness in this - almost unbelievable.

Thanks Jean, I appreciate your comment. I was trying to grasp an intensity, a momentariness — you're exactly right, and I'm gratified to know it came across. I wasn't sure it would. The problem with writing and posting immediately is I have no distance from which to judge whether something works well or not. Still, there remain other advantages, so I continue.

These beautiful words make me think of a child, catching raindrops, but also of a baby at her mother's breast. Those treasured drops.

Well, I had such a nice juicy thoughtful comment, but The Comment Bugaboo ate it.

So I have to content myself with..."aaaahhhhh."

RA, there's a lot of history of both, all treasured.

Polona, thanks for your wonderful words.

Pat, you got it. Thanks.

Floots, yup!

Lori, argh, not The Comment Bugaboo! But I have to say, "aaaahhh" does quite nicely. Thank you very much.
