Rain

Walked to the lake.

It was spitting rain.

Swarms of little insects were whirling around. Or maybe those were not insects. Maybe those were dandelion seeds. Or something else.

Tried to take shots of the lake, but the slashes across the viewfinder were really noticeable. Self settled for taking this:

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Special Report, The Economist: Technology and Politics

The piece (26 March 2016) begins:

  • Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner for the American presidency . . .

Because here it is May. And Trump IS going to be the Republican nominee.

Stay tuned.

Poem For After Rain

Listen yet, the Blue-Tailed Bee-Eater will come —
Green head, yellow throat, reddish breast, long blue tail —
Soon after the rain, after the last patter.
If we but listen.

—  from “Blue-Tailed Bee Eater,” in If I Write You This Poem, Will You Make It Fly by Simeon Dumdum, Jr.
