drops of silver...

it's been raining on and off for days.  last night, rather than cancel another baseball game, the kids played in the light drizzle.  near the end of the game, a heavy fog settled in.  it was like a gauzy curtain and it made everything look so soft and dreamy.  i found myself wishing i had brought my camera.  but, i did get out for a while earlier in the afternoon and i caught these lovely drops of silver.  and the perfect snippet of poetry to go with it...

Tell me how many beads there are
in a silver chain
of evening rain,
unravelled from the tumbling main...
