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 🙂

  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!
