Fresh air tingles on my skin. I smell the rain drops still lingering on the grass. Vibrant green. Perky. Reaching up and up. Stretching toward the little bubbles of white in the blue. Respectfully. In silence.
Waking up. Living fully. Present here. Growing with every ray of sun. I breathe. I feel the trees inhale and exhale. I hear the birds sing. I see the face of the wind. And I touch Life. Briefly. Quietly. Between the storms.

That’s so beautiful Tiny! 🙂
Thanks H.J.! Happy you liked my musing…literally between the storms 🙂
Happy you liked it Kathy!
Very well done … ME
Thank you…salt marsh poetry 🙂
Thank you for bringing the beauty of the nature to us, Tiny!
We’ve had a really stormy two weeks. But the good part is that everything is so fresh…and the salt marsh has “extra lakes” too. Happy you liked it, Amy.
Thoughtful words and a lovely picture, i can almost smell the rain on the grass.
Thank you Susan. It is very fresh now, everything is bright green after days of rain.
You can see the forest growing in the pond. It is a vivid green reflection extending the real into the aquatic imagination.
You’re right! That pond is a new and temporary one in the park because of the rains we been having…and will still have this week.
Wonderful share, Tiny! We have more water in the lagoon than I ever recall seeing before ~ we have had more rain than usual lately.
Thanks Nancy! The salt marsh has the same high water level now that I remember after tropical storm Debby. Lots of “extra ponds/lakes”, including on the beach. Birds take fresh water baths. Unfortunately hundreds of homes have been evacuated because of severe flooding in the northern counties.
Lovely words, Helen. We’ve also had quite a few storms. You have to be quick to dash out between them. I think our birds are happy that the lake is filling up again. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia. We’ve had more rain than I remember since tropical storm Debby in June 2012. The water level in the salt marsh is really up…and “extra lakes” are forming in some of the “valleys”. Birds are happy, some home owners, particularly north of us, not so much.
Ah yes … There is a special alertness and energy between storms. Love this Tiny!
Yes there is! Thank you kindly, Val.
Reminds me of the lovely freshness of rain in the warm season.
Soon your winter will be over and lovely spring will be there 🙂 Here I’m always looking forward to the fall-winter-spring time which is our cooler and drier time. Now it’s been cooler, but ah so much rain! Everything is so fresh and vibrant.
blue skies what a change, so much better than the constant grey.
Yes it is. Our grays don’t usually last that long, but now the storms have been rolling in non-stop…only a few hours of blue skies every few days.
Besautifully expressed Tiny! I feel kindred with you in this:-)
Thank you! Have a blessed day and week.
OH, I know the feeling, but could not have expressed it so well!
Thank you kindly, Elena. Have a great day.
Wonderful words, most like the “Growing with every ray of sun” as that is the feeling I have when I am out enjoying the day peacefully.
Thank you Randall. Going out and enjoying time in nature is the best soul food I can think of.
You really captured the vibrant refreshing effects of a rain storm, Tiny.
Thank you, Jet. It’s been a really stormy two weeks, and we’ve received more than enough rain…now looking forward to some sunny days.
Watching weather is one of my favorite things to do. You do the philosophy of weather quite well!
That’s one of my favorite things to do as well! Thanks Susan.
Lovely! We had a crazy rainstorm in New Orleans last Wednesday. The calm after the storm is quite beautiful.
We’re still waiting for the calm after the storms here…wrote this post as a reminder of sunny days we haven’t seen in over two weeks now 🙂 Happy to see you!
It was a crazy week. I’d forgotten how draining it is to be “on” from 7am to midnight – or later – every day.
Oh, I still remember that. Draining. Hope it’s getting little better for you…
