Early Spring Walk

umbrella pops
big gust implosion
robes thrash about

vision blurred
in cold rain mist
glass splatters





the tired monk

  11. Fortunately rain has no effect on the third eye. Or so I've heard. I'm pretty blind on a clear day.

  13. Perfect! Reminds me of the days when I wore glasses, wishing I had windscreen wipers when it rained! After contacts - the unusual feeling of rain on that usually untouched part of my face!
