“But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.”

Wet weather haiku

rainy weekend
my cat curls all day
on the couch

streets awash –
between downpours
faint bird-song

Written for Project 366, where I am a guest this month.

This Photo

This photo shows, only to me, 
my wind chimes' mellow notes; 
kids whistling, calling each other; 
the flurry of a sudden bird;
the damp smell of the rain.

Wet day,
the rain persistent.

I pull out my small black folding
brolly – but
the switch to open and shut it
detaches, drops, vanishes.

Wet day.

Domestic Vignette

Rain falls soft and steady.
I open my door to the cool.
My small black cat
moves further inside the house
to sprawl on the bare coffee table.
