BOOM/Streaks in the sky
and floods all over the place once again,
as the sirens are heard from afar and near
yet soon the soon will come shining through
as I type I can hear the grass growing.
Summer time, and the rains are falling
the smells of newness still outweigh the soggy smells and the mosquitoes are having a hey day!
Bring on the SUNSHINE
we love the SUN
while others around the globe are wishing for rain, I’ve had enough.
thunder booming woke me from my sleep along with the 4 leggeds barking with such intensity that I thought perhaps an intruder had decided to meet them and me.
It was RAIN, thunder, lightning
once again as our guests of the day.
I tried to assure them, to let them know that it was yet another day to be grateful for all that we have, to just be in our happy places as I came out to make coffee in a cheerful and delightful mood amidst the barking of we don’t like the rain.
Only to discover that the day and the 4 leggeds alarm was trying to let me know that my happy place was being threatened by what I saw next:
what you see is WATER on my hardwoods
as a result of rains that have seeped in,
from the rains.
Once again, this year.
First we had Tropical Storm Debby and her ability to rain harder than folks saw in major hurricanes and have her way into my home by the deluge of waters and making their way into my home; now this.
Once again, the rains had fallen so fast, so fierce that water has made its way into my home
from the concrete slab it seems, the very foundation of my home,
My happy place is threatened, but this time not by humans.
Time for the towels to be dried in order to be laid out again on the hardwoods.
Time for me to turn up the music, to dance, to get back to my happy place.
NO, it’s not time to call my home owners insurance, as they do not cover this, as I was told from the last Tropical Storm Debby.
It is time,
to be grateful, to embrace the day, to be thankful that another human was not the one who tried to get into my happy place with such nonsense or to get me to jump and react or to give them a come to sherry reality check.
I’m looking for the sun,
the weatherman says I should be looking for more rain.
I’M LOOKING FOR SUN
Watching the flowers sing.
Wherever you are
Whatever you are doing
Do it with style
yep, bout like that it was!
