Rain in sheets blurring the landscape, dripping from the bird feeders, pouring from the trees. Cats alert, listening to the low rumble of thunder. We all watch though the window as diagonal water falls from the sky.

This post reads like a haiku- elegant in "telling it like it is." I also love the quote. Thank you Suzanne. Your words are nectar to the soul.

what a wonderful description ofa storm
wish I was there enjoying it with you with a glass or cup of something
and some small talk
like what is the meaning of life

Hi there Colleen, it is good to see you, thanks for the kind words. :-)

Suz, you would be very welcome to watch with us. . . and yes, I can imagine there would be a lot of 'small' talk if we got together. ;-)

Good to see you both.

I miss the thunderstorms back home. Do you know I've lived here for seven years and still haven't experienced one thunderstorm? Weird eh? It rains, and sometimes we get a rumble but nothing more. I've only seen lightning once. lol

Welcome to the Twilight Zone.

Nice piece of writing, Susannah.

Hi Paul, that must be strange!

I think we subconsciously get used to our 'normal' surroundings (weather patterns included) and it must be strange when things don't conform! :-)

Good to see you and thanks for the comment.
