"Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness."

Easter Sunday, 4 am

But last year’s bitter loving must remain
Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide.

  9. The last rain of summer is more soothing, calming. Not so stormy and alarming as earlier. Reading this helps one/me to think "calming rain." (An aside, our hurricane season is from June 1st to the end of November. Many of the hurricanes are spawned on the west coast of Africa.)
