Having come out of a huge, very late in the season, long lasting thunder storm, although a repeat, California Sky is very appropriate for this now beautiful day.

I will return to "Marriage Talk 2" shortly


California Sky


Storm over!

Gray sky opening.


California sky deep blue

With startling white clouds

Floating from here to infinity.


Hills burnt brown with countless

Days of year-round sunshine

Now alive with velvet-like

Green growth brought to

Life by the kiss of heavens tears.


Rolling hills with wind rippled

Undergrowth born anew by

Liquid touch

As off in the distance

Far mile upon mile

Ragged mountains range with

Snowy white crowns

Leaving one to wonder

If cloud topped 

Or snow covered.


Haze of the city washed

Clean by wind and rain

Giving vision,

So far as the

Eye can see

With crystal clarity.


Storm over!

Gray sky opening.

There is something special how storm clouds give way to calm. Except when Eileen forgets to put the lid on the dog poop bucket. Nicely done. Patrick

Describes a typical stormy day in paradise.

I recall seeing 2 inches of hail covering the ground at Stanford in 1966.
