The Last Cloud...

that promised rain,
rumbled and grumbled
thundering across the sky.
Bringing hope and possibility,
clinging to the greyness
The winds tossed the promises away
and left us disappointed,
dry and even hotter.

Great post - pictures and lovely words. Yup... we live that sentiment, too!

Cara said...

Very dry and very hot here, in my heart. Chills at the same time. Cold to the bone.

Sounds like here. We even get thunder, but no rain.
I'm praying you'll get some soon!

Sue said...

What lovely photos, and the text is quite lyrical.

I like these little photo essay/poems of yours.

Sorry. Still watching the clouds here.

Tamara said...

Same thing happens here! Looks like a major storm is coming in then nothing! Your pics are really beautiful!

Hi Gail, It was just like that here this afternoon. As I finished work there was thunder going off all around and there were big black clouds threatening to drop some rain on us but in the end it turned out to be nothing. By the way I keep meaning to thank you for the info on the wasp that you kindly sent me. I don't much go for wasps but you have to admire the work they put in to their short lives. Anyway thank you, it was very interesting.

I want a camera just like yours. Apparently, you can find the silver lining in anything, including black clouds.

Well I got the gray, the rain, the wind, the thunder and the lightening. Then I lost my internet all morning. :(

Those kind of clouds I could sit and make things in all day. :)

We've had the very same thing two days in a row. Annoying as hell!

Nora said...

Wonderful clouds, Gail. Too bad they brought no relief. I would send you some rain, but we need it ourselves.

I love the first photo :)

Beautiful pictures. Pretty clouds. They don't give us any rain either.

Sounds like Arkansas is sizzling too. Yep, I'm tired of being teased by Mother Nature. The heat is not funny anymore. Debi
