rain

    Rain
    I can hear you
    making small holes
    in the silence
    rain

    If I were deaf
    the pores of my skin
    would open to you
    and shut

    And I
    should know you
    by the lick of you
    if I were blind

    the something
    special smell of you
    when the sun cakes
    the ground

    the steady
    drum-roll sound
    you make
    when the wind drops

    But if I
    should not hear
    smell or feel or see
    you

    you would still
    define me
    disperse me
    wash over me
    rain

    Hone Tuwhare

    One of my favourite poems from New Zealand poet Hone Tuwhare

    You can see what kind of weather we had today :-) I know this won't appeal to everyone but I like it and believe it or not this is a colour photo.
