There’s A Cold Front Moving Thru

You say . . .
. . .there’s a cold front moving through

clouds rush overhead
flashes of silvery light
passing from one tree to the next

one empty blue patch
catches the sun
& throws it down onto earth
for all to see

I say . . .
. . . there’s a cold front moving through

now reflections disappear
as if never there before
I can still see the leftovers
& my only remaining sky

. . . there’s a cold front moving through

  1. Joan! Your words are wonderful…but when I scrolled down and saw the picture…I could feel them in my bones! A wonderful pairing that makes me ask…which came first words? or photo? Brrrr! Awesome skills πŸ™‚

  2. You certainly bring intensity and “color” to an impending change whether it be weather or something else. Wonderful metaphor that keeps the reader on edge, waiting..pondering. Great write, Joanie!

  3. WRITING NOTES:
    I was traveling on the road and saw flashes of silver light pass over the trees as I rounded the curves. Then I noticed it about three more times, looking up I saw that the cold front line was near. There was only one opening in the sky – and there the sunlight passed through…. reminded me of love lost and gained! I pulled over onto the shoulder and wrote my poem and shot the photo! I love going for a drive — never know what you can find or imagine!

  4. Brian, I was reflecting on love and how it changes. And in one moment somehow it can be gone, lost & unrecoverable?? –like a storm approaching. One might have a sense that change is taking place but maybe not until it is too late!

    I can still see the leftovers…this section is really evocative…and opens it up as well to something more than just the weather…smiles.
