Know what I miss?  The smell
of thunder, the air right before
a storm.  It's pregnant with

ozone, ready to give birth at the
first crack!  of lightning, the
sky purpled and still.  I inhale

the cloud's labor, feel it deep
in my back, looking forward to
the relief that will come in rain.

(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (6/21)

I miss that too. Used to love the summers in the Northeast where I grew up. Now I'm in LA. No thunderstorms here unless you go to the desert.

I thought of you yesterday as we watched our very own twister form and come down less than two miles away. We lived in Missouri for 4 years and never saw a twister... we had to move to Montana for that, I guess. :~) We had hail the size of bouncy balls and golf balls as well. It made for quite the memorable Father's Day!
Hope you and Karen are doing well.
Cryssa :~)

I don't miss it, but I'd rather have some rain; it would certainly cool things off! *HOT!* Well done, Karla; enjoyed this one!
