Sit back and relax


Peace echos around me

the gentle tick of the clock

the hum of the fish tank

soft rustles of the trees

mellow coos of the dove


Slow deep long breaths

eyes restfully closed

minds eye focused

thoughts drifting in the breeze

the calm before the storm

silence is golden

A little spot of rain

Slate clouds fill the sky

Drops of rain fall steadily

Wind whips around the trees

thunder rumbles islowly


The storm arrives with vengence

Rain pours from the sky heavily

It pushes its way through the sealed window

The patio becomes a pond as the water rises


Lightening carves its way through the slate

The water collects with nowhere to go

A branch snaps as the wind takes hold

A clap of thunder startles me


Slate clouds turn to pale grety

Wind blows softly

Rain drops become little spots

The water is dying away.
