It’s Raining, It’s Pouring but there’s no time for snoring

June 23, 2012, 12:54 pm by Heather Webster

Greyness has closed out the sky and brought the edge of my vision to the nearest field. Rain fills the air, flecking white against the green of the trees and vines. It is gravity manifest. Water droplets coalesce and overweight with success. Falling becomes the only option. There are no clouds or sun, just wetness, … Continue reading

Threads in the Sky

June 15, 2012, 9:03 am by Heather Webster

There was a light breeze as I worked in the garden. Just enough to make some leaves tremble. And, as I worked the finest thread of cobweb brushed my cheek. The work was rewarding.

Safe as Houses

June 2, 2012, 8:09 pm by Heather Webster

As safe as houses! But of course, houses are not safe. Not safe from shattering quakes or cars which failed to drive past; not safe from crafty thieves or those intent on malicious damage; but most of all not safe from the greed of financiers and men in sharp suits who connive to divert flows … Continue reading
