The clouds have darkened
And I hear a distant thunder roar,
The warm hues of the sky overturned
By malevolent shades of gray.
I apprehend the gusts of wind whooshing through the trees,
I sense turbulence taking over the dense stillness of the air.
I walk into the the kitchen,
And pour myself some warm coffee.
I grab a few cookies from the jar,
And the bookmarked journey I left unattended.
I hum a happy song on the way back to the my favorite reading chair,
Just in time to watch my favorite show…
Just in time to witness the ferocious thunderclap glow.
