I know this may seem weird,
but I like a cup of hot coffee
even on a 100 degree day.
I think it's nice to have a leisurely cup
with a frozen cookie on top
(so it will thaw perfectly).
The clouds are developing, looking threatening.
But we are watching the skies for lightning (again).
Because of heat, because of wind,
and because it's so crackling dry here,
we're under high fire danger.
Actually, a warning for today.
I'll sip my coffee and watch.
I dragged my hoses around the yard and gardens this morning.
It's my weekly watering of trees and shrubs
and whatever else I think needed a dousing.
A good, hard rain would be most appreciated.
When He imparted weight to the wind
And meted out the waters by measure,
When He set a limit for the rain
And a course for the thunderbolt...
