Forest Rains Natural Designs Studio

A cloudburst of water refreshes the forest glade.  As the parched ground becomes a pool, puddles emerge from the dust and tree canopies drip with rain.  I hear a mountain brook rushing madly to the meadow and feel the cool relief of gentle breezes.  The summer rain has come to offer us a moment of peace, comfort and a reason to pause.  This poem from W.S. Merwin comes to mind...

".....believer in shade

believer in silence & elegance

believer in ferns

believer in patience

believer in the rain."

- The Rain in the Trees, 1988

Let's take a reprieve from routine and relish in the height of summer,
