The wind came out of nowhere
One minute it was still and quiet
Drawn in close and heavy
And the next
The wind roared in causing the chairs on the deck
Things were flapping about
And the rain
Came pouring down
The weather mood shifted and tossed
Eventually settling into a huffy kind of sulk
From out of which gently, the rain began to fall.
Almost in spite of itself
The weather calmed
And I breathed deeper, knowing just how it felt
Don’t we all
Get a little gusty out of nowhere sometimes?

Hehe, as soon as I saw the title, I thought: ‘Hello, there’s a metaphor’ 🙂 Hope you’ve got your electricity sorted!
Taken the week! Still appliances with shattered circuitry like just big printer photocopier. But it could have been far worse – my computer could have been blown up. Then again…I could have got some gardening done perhaps.
Haha, yes, shame on you for neglecting a golden opportunity for weeding ;-p Good to hear that you are back on the grid but sorry about the fried items 🙁
One of my favorites ❤
Perfectly executed metaphor.
Thankyou Carol sort of write itself this one and I wasn’t sure where it was going till it went there.
I love how the weather was used to compare to human emotions 💕
Thanks Hannah- it began about the weather and then I realised it was about me – we do get gusts out of nowhere sometimes 😊💕
Oh, well in that case…I won’t rain on your parade 😉😂
In such few words you define so much 💚 what a gift to us! 💙
Thanks Karla – I think words are our gift as humans but we frequently use them incorrectly – trying..

Thanks M I didn’t know it was coming then suddenly the whole poem made sense 😊
