Rain on the Beach

June 10, 2018

This is the shower I loved.

As I shot the sunrising to the northeast

(because the sun moves in that direction from my vantage point in summer),

this shower was approaching from the south.

 Tiny drops announced its arrival.

Tiny drops became bigger drops.

I ducked under a walkway and sat down at the base of a sand dune.

It felt good, the wind and light rain.

Cleansing.  Refreshing.

I laughed watching the pelicans, terns and gulls

feast on the running bluefish

as the rains kept them company.

The shower was short lived.

Pulling myself out of my lair I continued my camera-play.

Sunrise is fun.

“Never lose an opportunity

of seeing anything beautiful,

for beauty is God’s handwriting.”

(Ralph Waldo Emerson)

 

It’s raining today.  Nothing like rain at the beach.  It drives the crowds away and cleanses the air.  The Earth takes in the clean, fresh water and plants rejoice in the moisture.  I thrive in this abundance.  The peace it brings, the nurturing it brings as Spirit washes us clean.  Enjoy this day.
