My sons prefer to toss water wrapped in latex.
sudden rain --
a water balloon bursts
at his feet
It rained this morning, the remnants of a tropical storm in the Pacific. In my
entire life, I don't think I've ever seen it rain in California in July. At first, I
thought it was my neighbor's sprinkler, then I saw that it was watering my
woodpile. Why, it was coming from the*sky*. Who woulda thunk?
worn work gloves --
the thunk-thunk-thunk of wet logs
hitting the woodpile
coffee break --
three stellers jays gossip
over the compost
