Wild Woman, Dancing in the Rain

google image

Gray skies,
hovering,
rain tapping
timpani 
on porch roof,
a faint throbbing hum
from the wind chimes.
Parched trees 
drinking gratefully,
the last curled golden leaf
wavering
on its gnarled branch.

The horse is sheltering
under the dripping pines
and, if you look
through the mist,
you can see
Wild Woman,
dancing in the rain.

  4. After two days of torrential rain, I could have been the girl in the picture. I loved the inclusion of the horse - such a lovely attention to detail.

  16. Love the beautiful progression in this that leads to the wonderful end....we all should dance in the rain. Love this Sherry....by the way I wanted to thank you for your kind comments at my older post about my Mom. I guess it is amazing that we all survive the beginning half of our lives. You certainly have much wisdom and amazing tales to share. :-)
