And finally!

Outside the windowIs the rain, green
because it is summer, and beyond that
the trees and then the world,
which is round and has only
the colours of these nine crayons

    My mother ran excitedly down to the rain guage a few months ago after a shower fell. She didn’t get the reading though — a frog got in first and drank up all the water!

    “Bones and Murder” is a different one from good bones. She’s got a bit of a fixation…
    I like her poetry best, I think.

    You’re welcome, Missjenjen… I’m not sure how easy it is to find, but it’s definitely worth it.

    It’s raining here (in Sydney) too, soak, soak, soak. What a relief.

    Oh, good! I’m so glad you guys are getting rain!
    On a Margaret Atwood related note, has anyone read “Good Bones”? It’s a collection of short uh… works (not poetry, not short stories, not really essays… just writing in the best Atwood way…)

    I think I have, but from what I recall, it’s called “Bones & Murder”. It’s also got funny drawings done by Margaret Atwood herself. I liked that book, very clever. 🙂

    That was lovely. I’ve never heard of Margaret Atwood (before today) so I’m glad I surfed my way to your site.

    It is so beautifully peaceful, the soft rain falling here and the cars “shush”-ing past the window. The heavens have opened.
    Isn’t it such a relief, fellow drought-striken Aussies?!

    Inside the room,Against pallid screen,
    An arm is raised, hand outstretched,
    Fingers splayed, palm open.
    Warm skin gently pressed to cold glass:
    ‘Hello, it’s nice to meet you Loobylu’.

    my favorite atwood novel is “cat’s eye” and i have “the blind assassin” sitting here.
    love this site. i’d love to have you drawn an illustration or two for my site, but i doubt i could afford you.

    anyhow, beautiful work, claire.
