First storm of the season rolling in
I should have know that it was coming.
Dragging in on the tails of the snow that fought the rain this morning, it demands
to be acknowledged
as the rightful owner of the season.
The echoes shake the mountains, thunder bouncing off the land and back again and the lightning doesn’t touch the darkness
that’s been building now, for days.
The clouds were heavy all day, heavy under the weight
of everything and when it rains
(it finally started up again, just now)
it isn’t anything
but the voiding of the sky.
