The kingdom of the father is spread out over the earth, and people do not see it.”

The Gospel of Thomas, Saying 113

When I rode to work this morning it was raining. I didn’t get soaked but I was rather wet. Thankfully I brought extra clothes in a plastic bag. I stopped home during lunch break and it was just after the rain. Steam rose from the pavement and there was dew everywhere. I snapped these photos from a tiger lily plant in my front yard, the words I wrote later this evening.

After the Rain

after the rain things are different

if not just for a short time

everything is lush

green

steam rises

droplets glisten

for just a few moments

maybe more

the veil is lifted

ever so slightly
