After the rain...

"The kingdom of the father is spread out over the earth, and people do not see it."
The Gospel of Thomas, Saying 113

When I rode to work this morning it was raining. I didn't get soaked but I was rather wet. Thankfully I brought extra clothes in a plastic bag. I stopped home during lunch break and it was just after the rain. Steam rose from the pavement and there was dew everywhere. I snapped these photos from a tiger lily plant in my front yard, the words I wrote later this evening.

After the Rain
after the rain things are different
if not just for a short time
everything is lush
steam rises
droplets glisten
for just a few moments
maybe more
the veil is lifted
ever so slightly
