Blow Ye Western Winds!
So California is getting hammered today. After 42 dry days, rain in settling in and I am grateful for it. The wind started up this morning by about 7 and the worst of the storm should arrive later this afternoon. In the interim, I have done a bit of writing, have walked the dog and have started two pots of soup: a tomato lentil and a curry butternut squash.
Here is a short poem to think about as the storm settles over us.
Gray against black
a single gull seeks out currents
pull it to ground.
As I was waling early this morning, a saw a single gull trying to navigate currents, perhaps seeking out shelter. It struck me that no other birds were out.
