Rain Memories
17 December 2005

Curtains of soft grey mist
and rainblack road
and fresh green hills and fields -
the silence shouts
and you, my children,
are again with me
in Vernon, the Volkswagen Variant,
voices bubbling
and all of us
lifted into a rain-excitement
bathed in an unconscious happiness
untinged with pain,
and the memory
crumples me.

Very beautiful, dear Owl! The rain exercises its fascination on children and there is joy in touching the wet element ... the association with tears comes later.

You say it so very well!

Love,
Margherita

Damn, this is good.
You hit right home, gave me chills.

Made me remember going to the drive-in
all packed in - all the neighborhood kids
in an ole' station-wagon, the kind with the fake wood on the side?

Nice job, Diana.

You captured me and I want to just reach through the screen and hug the years away.
