Please enjoy this poem by our friend Loie. And maybe a celebratory bone.

RAIN FOR ME, MY RAIN

I lean out the barn window
on a day when the rain
is indescribably bright
and notice how the hemlock
bed down in mist
The rain floats

    &nbsp small feathers of blessing.
This clearing, a feeding child
taken out of kindness.
The sky opens white.
The spoon-shaped mist
comes down like milk.
