All day the rain has fallen. Thick clouds shield the sun from sight, warmth from fur. We have curled tight in the house and hoped. Late afternoon the clouds rolled back, sunshine came and with it warmth and a rising of insects. Outside the air buzzed. A distant sea sound rolled and water drops dripped in a slow tune that remembered the rain symphony played earlier. Still we hoped and our hope was rewarded.
Tonight, clear sky, full moon, lunar eclipse, beautiful. And still the sound of the sea, pulled by the moon to rise and fall on the distant shore.
