SILP0915130003_640Last night, I plugged in the Silhouette Portrait and tried it for the first time.  It was very easy to use and worked as expected.  I’m going to get a lot of use out of this little tool.

The Rain

BWRAIN0912130021_640xLast night
the rain
spoke to me
slowly, saying,
what joy
to come falling
out of the brisk cloud,
to be happy again
in a new way
on the earth!
That’s what it said
as it dropped,
smelling of iron,
and vanished
like a dream of the ocean
into the branches
and the grass below.

~Mary Oliver (Last Night the Rain Spoke to Me)
