May is our #1 month for severe storms (ie. tornadoes and such). I don't have any pretty, up-close photos of recent storms. But, I thought it'd be appropriate to share one of a gorgeous rainstorm during this stretch. This photo was taken in July 2007 at Lake Hefner in north Oklahoma City, as the front was moving over the area. The contrast between (+ blurring of) clouds, sky, rain, and water ripples was stunning to see.
from "The Rain" by Robert Creeley
Love, if you love me,
lie next to me.
Be for me, like rain,
the getting out
of the tiredness, the fatuousness, the semi-
lust of intentional indifference.
with a decent happiness.
