silver liquid drops

Spring in Maryland means rain.  And more rain.  We yearn for the sunny calm days we know are coming and the farmers fret about not getting crops planted on time.  Soon enough we will have weather that threatens reaching triple digits and all the havoc that brings.  I want to kneel in my yard and play in the earth and anticipate a summer filled with unspoken promise. But it's not time yet. 

Let the rain kiss you. 
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. 
Let the rain sing you a lullaby. 
~Langston Hughes








  1. I LOVE this! Here in Washington everyone descends upon any park, trail or outdoor venue of any kind when it finally stops raining. I'm trying to appreciate the weather here for the coolness it brings when other places are boiling hot, and for the beautiful green-ness. And maybe I wouldn't mind the rain so much if i looked like those girls do holding an umbrella :)

  2. It rains whenever it feels like here. I wish I looked that good in the rain!

  3. What amazing pictures! I would like rain to wash away the pollen.
