Haiku: Blessed Rain

blessed rain –
how earth creates
its own miracles

  1. I love the luxuriant green in these images, and the shallow depth-of-field to focus on the dogs. Even in the overcast lighting, these images seem to have a glow about them. Perhaps it’s the color saturation of the green grass. Absolutely gorgeous. And your verse is wonderful and one I can identify with–I love a gentle country rain. Thank for sharing the beauty of your world, Xenia. πŸ™‚

  3. It looks beautifully green in your corner of the world, Xenia. I hope it’s getting warmer too and that spring is bringing blue skies and sun, along with the rain. Love and hugs from me and Gibbs.
