Pieces Of April
As another April slips into the history books there are only pieces of April that remain. Where I currently am, we did not get many of the rain showers April is famous for this year, but rain is beating on my roof as I write this.
I love rain and the way the whole world seems to glisten, glow, and shine after a big rain. That is perhaps why I carry the hope of rain and pieces of April always in my heart. Some years ago there was a popular song on the radio with the haunting refrain, “I’ve got pieces of April, but it’s a morning in May.” That will certainly be true for me come tomorrow morning.
I do plan to savor this last April day of showers and just as soon as I have completed this piece, read over and polished it a bit, and sent it on it’s way, to slip on my hooded rain jacket and feel the rain on my face as I bike out in it.
“ I’ve got pieces of April…”
