Raindrops splatter on the windshield, sky’s tears
Speeding wheels on wet pavement, heard through glass
The yawning of the sun means cold still nears
Winter clings to twilight, makes its reign last
A small storm assembles, until it clears,
We watch its feat, waiting for it to pass
Step out the car to a warm sunshine feel
Or misty air wafting a home cooked meal

Let me just say, I love thunderstorms. And lightning. Even in the gloomiest of days, if you look hard enough, there are little sparks, however fleeting, that can make you smile.
Thanks for reading,

Ya, thunderstorms are the best. I even like rainy days… but not cold rainy days. Those are the miserable kind.
That’s true, there is sad rain that makes you stay inside the house playing cards and then there’s summer rain that makes you want to dance around outside, haha.
There’s a clearness in the air after the rain has passed and the picture captures it beautifully.
I thought so too!
Nice. I like that last line.
this felt like “warm rain” and with being in a car in that weather just felt right, a window half down and moist air filling the lungs……well thats the sensation i got reading this, perfect penning my friend 🙂
Yes, it’s been pretty mild though the temperature is still dropping randomly here. Thanks for commenting 🙂
most welcome, it just had that “feel” to it 🙂
This is so beautiful. The range of colour and shape in this painting is perfection.
I thought so too 🙂
