Hail

This random word selection is proving to be a great deal of spontaneous fun. Amusing that the spontaneity is a lure when I rarely plan a post ever at all! It must be something fundamental to my blogging experience. And my life: that has a vague plan too. Living in a temperate climate of course one can always blame the weather.



Travels down, cloud to ground:
This word from the Greek,
'A round pebble,'
Rolls through Northern climes
Into my language from the Anglo Saxon:
'Hagal:' a word to grunt
When the sky spits ice.
Descriptive truth of that guttural utterance
Plain as a cold weathered rock.
