October 19-20, 2015, Chino Valley
Some thoughts on a couple of rainy days:
Awakening under stars,
glorying in a shower.
Glancing at the news,
whilst thinking of my brood.
The clouds ride north with me,
and plot their mid-day reverie.
Some are stranded behind sand-bagged washes,
Most, though, tough out the day,
and a will that overcomes the driving rain.
For, learning soothes, and ignorance
Knowledge has sanctity.
Its lack, breeds angst,
