Sooo many ripples in the Lake as I sit on the large boulder off the picnic point……

…..looking across at Champagne Island….

The sky is grey….it looks like an approaching storm coming……

I so Love the thunder and lightening storms in the Midwest…….

the smell of rain before it comes…the way the temperature drops…..

and the fury that is unleashed …to eventually dissipate and then totally disappear….

leaving you with your lil Orphan Annie eyes staring into the darkness…wondering …Is It REALLY over…..

you sigh…turn over in your sleeping bag on the screened in porch…

Astonished by Nature

    yes, I remember well!

  2. Your writing is so vivid, I feel like I’m back on the porch smelling the rain. California rain is different – not evocative in the same way – I never remember its smell. xxd
