Lightning in the

Northwest ~ clouds

building higher with

every flash …

a Summer cold front

is rolling in


Those in the know

predict relief from

the stifling humidity

and a tiny drop

in temperatures


Along my nightly

walk the Cicadas

are singing more

frantic with each

lightning flash


The storm will

hold until I

make it home

but the humidity

is so thick I can

almost reach out

and grab handfuls

as I walk


Hopefully, the storm

will clear the air…

cool things a bit


chase away all the

bad vibes that

have been haunting

me for more than

a month …
