Mid Afternoon Thunderstorms

When the sky darkens

you welcome the breeze.

The smell of incipient rain

permeates the air as you breathe deeply.

The windows left open

so you can enjoy the sounds

of thunder as it rumbles across the sky

after the flashes of lightning have lit it up.

The heat of the morning washed away

as you go towards the evening heat.

But for now

this moment nature calls

as it plays out an old game

of watch me or hide away little creatures

as I dance across the sky.
