Renhai Reflections 129: After The Storms


After The Storms

A Renhai by Betty Kaplan (bk) & Vaughn Seward (vs)

This early morning
the sun's reflection plays —
sparkling clean windows. /bk

Summer storms every afternoon — /bk
the creek flows a bit deeper. /vs

Garden chores —
he empties the wheelbarrow
of rain water. /vs

There is a deep silence in it. And suddenly: the storms return. Quiet again. And then: the sound of water. Love this.

Best wishes

This is a more acurate portrait of my summer. There is somethign refreshing about stepping out after a storm and seeing what's changed. All the plants seem a little shell-shocked, but they quickly bounce back with renewed life.
