Rainy Days

wind starts door creaking
curtains billow through windows
dust from parched earth rise
as gray skies give way, raindrops
clamor – kids on porch with friends

wind starts door creaking
curtains billow through windows
dust from parched earth rise
kids on the  porch with their friends
paper boats in hand, pure joy

Thunder Storm

fierce looking storm clouds
churning skies charcoal color
nowhere near peaceful

first lightning then thunder roars
raindrops hit parched earth – I’m home

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

Storm

clouds

Photo, mine

after the storm pass
the leaves on branches hang still
shiny, spent, dripping
exhausted from the uproar
the stray cat stays in hiding
