Furiously windy this morning

I came to see the beauty of the lake

The Rain Forrest,the Volcano ash shake

The birds,flowers and the snakes

Hopefully a thousand pictures to take

Very windy this morning. The trees were bending their branches two to three feet . Swaying furiously back and forth. You can here branches crack from the force of the wind. A large bird was squawking in pain. Another animal must of attacked it when the branch broke.

It was five a.m. When the storm was raging. Too dark to see in the distance, but our dusk to dawn lights were on at our abode. Six a.m. The rain came down so hard it cascaded against the house like a gurgling River. It is calm now. Still windy but no rain

The River out front is at the highest level I have ever seen it. You can here it’s flow from the back bedroom. I expect the weather to do its usual clearing this afternoon although it is very dark and cloudy. It is the rainy season. A good day to write ore read a good book. My new book is out: Poems From Costa Rica. Go to xlibris.com/book storetimothymnugent or Amazon.comtimothymnugent if you prefer.

Pura Vida!

The Rains of Lake Arenal

I came to see the beauty of the lake

The Rain Forrest,the Volcano ash shake

The birds,flowers and the snakes

Hopefully a thousand pictures to take

Most rain in early afternoon

Forty mile an hour winds swoon

Trees bending to horizontal

Birds gliding nonsensical

Tin roofs clambering so loud

The force of the rain just pounds pounds

No voices can be heard

You lay quiet and watch the birds

The rain comes east to west

Never giving you time to rest

Too loud for you to sleep

You have no time clock to keep

The Lightning brightens the sky

Almost paralyzingly your eyes

Thunder claps the air

You take a deep breath Hoping nature has more to spare

You count the seconds from the lighting glare

To the thunderous claps of the fresh air

Six seconds: six miles away

The storm is leaving moving away

Instead of black the sky turns gray

Sensing showers are on the way

No more wind,no more rain Just another Lake Arenal rainy day
