Dangling and dripping from twigs and branches
raindrops sparkle like diamonds —
Nature’s tasteful touch of glamour
on an otherwise dismal day.

    Typically no sooner had I written this when the rain stopped, the clouds cleared and a weak sun began to shine. I wonder how long it will last.

    Lovely description this. I leave the old fennel plants in the garden to catch the raindrops – brings a bit light as you say!

    Rain is a fickle thing. As are snow flurries. Washington state, Seattle got quite a bit of snow yesterday so they shut the city down – more or less.

    A beautiful word picture. One of my favorite pictures taken at a cabin where we like to spend weekends is a a closeup of a raindrop waiting to fall from a twig in a tree just off the front porch.
