rain on the rooftop—
even before it ripens
it turns into dust

    It rained like that in Germany! It was summer, very dry – which we were not accustomed to. We had clothes drying on an outdoor line. The clothes dried in spite of the rain. It was surreal for folks who came from a humid island that is at sea level!

    Thanks…slippers can often refer to any foot wear, especially that which makes no sound when walking – often crepe rubber type soles 🙂 Or can be slipped on the feet without lacing.
    Then again ballet slippers are only durable with proper care and require much time and effort to put on correctly 😉

    This is sad really…though wonderful imagery….rain turning to dust without helping anything grow.

  9. You capture drought vividly.

    Rain disappearing without doing any benefit to anything, but just lives on to be useless dust. Incredible piece!

  11. There are layers here–so very well done Mark
