The Beauty of Rain
Samples of photos and writings by Jeff Owenby
Warm, cold neutral.
Gray is a name,
a shade on a form,
a light behind the sky,
a veil to deceive the eye.
The gray is but a curtain that opens a window unto myself showing me another view of another time in another life, while all around me, the rain falls gently.
Wet city streets. The road curves south. Bleak and unharried. Morning sausage and eggs. Wipers peel away silver stripes and the rain starts a new day.
