The sky could not be bluer

turquoise and ocean and bright summer day

captured on the snow piled like icing on the trees,

but on the horizon

a wall of charcoal grey

hints at a blizzard on its way.

I watch through the window and hope

I’m home before it hits.

    ah, nothing like the approach of a storm. Once I was in just the right spot to watch one pass me by. Stars above, giant thunderheads went galumphing by a few miles off…

    if it was me, i’d have left off the last line. (i know, i know, that’s the whole point of it)

  2. In the north country, a wall of grey brings lots of white. In the desert southwest, a wall of black brings a ton of brown dust.
