that's the word...
that was the weather...

My first glimpse was from the window...
what was this?
At 8:30 p.m. a sky so ominous.
Expected a space ship or a large hand to reach
right down.
Perhaps the reckoning had arrived.

Impending -- storms coming.

They roll across the countryside -
announcing their arrival
for miles.

Lightning, then wind, then buckets of rain.

And a lost kitten, Winter...out in the storm.
2 months old, lost in the storm.


Yes, that is the word.

I don't much care for storms. 
They take, always take -- never give...
Impending doom -- announcing it had arrived, to take again.

Addendum July 21...
My little kitten Winter has returned, scared - but back.
doom & gloom be gone...

Stop looking out the window, go up in your cozy study and wait it out. Mother Nature is in charge, and you can't beat her!

I know Jani...I know. But every now & again I make some deals, and even stand with my heals dug in. I know I just can't win...but strong women like to knock heads every now & again.

So -- early this morning I made just such a deal -- figured my little kitten Winter had been gone for two days -- would probably hide for a bit or wander. Last night I walked the property edge --calling "Winter, Baby" -- (hear my voice follow it). Momma Hope came to help me, pleading too. In my early morning deal I said, "O.K. you can be scared for a bit -- then you fight back -- come on Winter, do it". And guess who was waiting in the barn this morning. Deal or not -- Winter is back. Cool weather has returned.
