And after the sun


Ping on the roof. A small cone falling?
Ping, ping, ping becomes a rattle.
Slam the windows, move the car.
Ice melts to frog's egg pools.

Yes the veges got another beating. And I'd just swept up all the pine needles brought down by the previous hail storm.

Reflection:
Job 38:22-37 (New International Version)
"Have you entered the storehouses of the snow
or seen the storehouses of the hail,
which I reserve for times of trouble,
for days of war and battle?
What is the way to the place where the lightning is dispersed,
or the place where the east winds are scattered over the earth?
Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain,
and a path for the thunderstorm,
to water a land where no man lives,
a desert with no one in it,
to satisfy a desolate wasteland
and make it sprout with grass?

  1. so sorry about your vegetables.

    am wondering about the part in job, where He
    causes grass to grow where there are no inhabi-
    tants. for His own good pleasure, for animals,
    or even just the ecosystem?

  2. I can hear the hail. What a shame for the vegies. Today we had rain thundering on the tin roof so loud that we couldn't hear ourselves speak.

  3. Diane, I remember rain like that during the speeches at our wedding!

    Lea, I believe God delights in his creation for all the reasons you have listed and that he loves us to delight in it too.

  4. What you hAVE written is good because of the massive change in energy in the middle. The frogs eggs is a terrific image.
