"Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby." ~Langston Hughes
(APRIL 21, 2010) RAIN! Half-way on our walk this morning the silver liquid drop beat upon our heads, and Sadie, though a bird dog, is not too happy with the silver liquid. When we returned home, we were two wet puppies.
There were not many people on the Riverwalk this morning. We ran into Sadie's dog friend, Jody (a small white dog that, a couple of years ago, licked Sadie in the ear at their first meeting - I think at that moment Sadie fell in love for the first time) and Jerry who sometimes rides a bike and sometimes walks (today he was walking). There was also a fisherman on the shore near the dam at Dan Daniel Park.
The day, for the most part, was black/white/gray, but there were occasional touches of color. A cardinal in the tree displayed some faint red, not the brilliant red that usually accompanies this beautiful bird. A bluebird jumped in front of us, and the light caught his bright blue. And, a great blue heron was anchored on the shoreline and the, like a prehistoric bird, flew down the river.
Except for being kissed by the rain (actually more like heavily smothered), it was a wonderful morning on the Riverwalk.
