In The Wind: A Stormy Sky

In The Wind: A Stormy Sky, originally uploaded by TomRaven.

A stormy winter sky tonight. Blowing a gale and rain on the way. Weather is really changeable at the moment with sunny crisp days and 12C nights and Norwesters followed by arctic blasts from the south with snow and sleet and hard frosts. Welcome to NZ in Winter and I'm in the mild North Island not the frozen South :-)

know nothing, are nothing, save a fume
driving across a mind
preoccupied with this: our doom
is, to be sifted by the wind,

heaped up, smoothed down like silly sands.
We are less permanent than thought.

From Villon by Basil Bunting (1900 - 1985)
