Temporary in Time...

a temporary time and place
woven between green leaf lace dark
space, he sits listening to thunder,
mesmerized by lightning, waiting for
rain to spill; splashing a musical refrain
upon his face upturned in the untamed night.
A smile lighting deep brown eyes. In the silence
I hear him whisper, "darlin', here comes the rain."

If you've written 55 words, no less no more, go on over to
G-Man, let him know and he'll pay you a visit!

  6. I hope he didn't speed up his pace because of a little rain. Slow and easy is the way to win this particular race.
