  1. Hi Geraldine–Then we all can plant potatoes? I think we need a certain phase of the moon besides your blue rain storm. 😉 Open, flash, boom, and follow make a nice active set of verbs. My ‘plant’ will fit right in/after.

  2. I loved this photo! The sky that day was really amazing, I remember it. You can almost “feel” the elements, reading this poem.

  3. Powerful parade of storm clouds in your photo! And your poem creates the sound effects!

  4. It will indeed. Nicely said – and a great pic.

  5. rain of summer, you put it well

  6. Very vivid imagery! I really liked this one.

  7. blue rain ushered in by a loud crack– very nice
