Newsletter June: a loud new moon
Posted: 5 June, 2019 By Blog
Dear Crew and friends,
I was gloriously trapped under the basement stairwell roof as the thunder rumbled ceaselessly and the rain threw itself down and washed the basil I had potted yesterday clean of debris.
It was the early dawn rainbow that drew me out earlier than I have been outdoors since I moved into the house - just as the rain started again. oh THIS is what I have longed for. To feel the lightning blast the sky, the eye drenched in the powerful picture of the clearing sky: from a heavy, pregnant grey to a light, light baby blue with clouds of wool floating rapidly apart in many shades of white.
The rain transformed into a sharp hail that came and then stopped - abruptly. In refreshed and awakened senses I walked the lawn and beheld the terrace covered in baubles of crystalline, temporary, firm little smile-inducing drops, prettily and throughly decorating all the grounds. The descriptive words came liquidly to me. Oh this new moon of June, it doth not come quietly. It shook, rumbled, thundered and lit the sky with bangs and claps, hailing a new fresh month on Earth.
