Sunday Dinner: Rain Kissed

“The only noise now was the rain,

pattering softly with the magnificent

indifference of nature

for the tangled passions of humans.”

“If I were rain,
That joins sky and earth that otherwise never touch,
Could I join two hearts as well?”

“… millions long for immortality

who don’t know what to do with themselves

on a rainy Sunday afternoon.”

with a cup of tea and a good book.”

“After every storm, there is a rainbow.

If you have eyes, you will find it.

If you have wisdom, you will create it.

If you have love for yourself and others,

you won’t need it.”

I wish you the beauty of storms…”

  1. Every diva could use a littlebling.

  2. How beautiful! 🙂 I don’t think my irises even have buds yet, and I know the roses don’t.

    • Robin, you aren’t that far north of us 😉 Everything has come on so fast here this season. Our roses bloomed about 6 weeks early, and our Mountain Laurel has come out now, too. It is just amazing how much is in bloom for May 1. I hope you will be enjoying yours soon now. Thank you for visiting ❤ ❤ ❤

  3. Such loveliness! Beauty surrounds you. 🙂
