A Rainy Thursday on the Prairies

I took this short video while standing within our covered deck. It’s a beautiful place from which to listen to the rain and stay (mostly) dry while listening. I don’t remember the last time we got a deluge like this, but there was likely a good rainfall or two last summer. The rain is calming and makes my cooped-up feelings roost and relax a bit. Wherever you are, I hope you have a chance to enjoy the rain, to breathe in deeply, and to notice you’re alive.

No one can claim the name of Pedro,

nobody is Rosa or Maria,

all of us are dust or sand,

all of us are rain under rain.

They have spoken to me of Venezuelas,

of Chiles and Paraguays;

I have no idea what they are saying.

I know only the skin of the earth

and I know it has no name.

Don’t threaten me with love, baby. Let’s just go walking in the rain.

  1. Thanks Lori Elaine and I are off to DPP north of Brooks this morning.  Hoping for great birds and a good experience.  Nice that you got so much rain.  WE didn’t as much as I wanted to see fall. Don Sent from Mail for Windows 10 From: Lori KnutsonSent: June 10, 2021 8:09 PMTo: cassidyd@telus.netSubject: [New post] A Rainy Thursday on the Prairies Lori Knutson posted: " I took this short video while standing within our covered deck.
