A Cloudy State of Mind

clouds lifting

After days of heavy rain, the gray cloud cover begins to lift.

The land remains sodden, sighing heavily.

Moisture rises like smoke signals from the hollows.

I set down my heavy load.

I wait for clear vision.


Nach vielen Regentagen hebt sich langsam die graue Wolkendecke.

Das Land liegt aufgeschwemmt, schwer seufzend.

Feuchtigkeit erhebt sich wie Rauch-Signale von den TΓ€lern.

Ich setzte meine schwere Last ab.

Ich warte auf einen klaren Blick.

    The thought of rain is lovely, although I suppose days of it could be gloom-inducing. The photo seems to convey a sense of relief at its ending.

  8. I love how you caught the mists clinging to the hillsides. It’s a tough shot to get. Nice thoughts to go along with it.


  9. Wonderful thoughts and image. I wait for clear vision. Seems like I say that all the time in the hottest time of the year, here. But, it is difficult to get a photo portraying the oppressive heat in March and April.


    • We are just now in the transition from winter into spring – every warmish day, every flock of robins brings us closer. Can’t even relate (yet) to oppressive heat. Hope you get some relief every once in a while…
