Lilacs and Lightening – May 20th

It has been a crazy weather day here in the Midwest. My heart goes out to the people of Oklahoma. We have nickel sized hail and a thunderstorm warning. So as the lights flicker I sit and listen to the crashing of the thunder and read poems.

The Lilac by Humbert Wolfe

Who thought of the Lilac?
“I,” dew said,
“I made up the lilac,
out of my head.”

“She made up the lilac!
Pooh!” thrilled a linnet,
and each dew-note had a lilac in it.

Below are some storm photos.
