Image (c) 2007, Karla Dorman

Pop, pop - clouds explode
Like popcorn, building
Only to fall as
Rain.  Dissipating
As evening sets in,
They slowly drift in
Butter-colored skies.
Lingering on tongue
And eyes, they melt in
The sun.  Summer storms
are delicious treats
every afternoon .. . ...

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (5/28)

Hey girl! some of that popcorn felt in my garden, a white bunch, hard cold and tasteless, weird people around here called it hail.
