last night i stood outside and watched a thunderstorm
pass us by in the distance.


the lightning was beautiful behind its veil of clouds

and i invited it into my garden,

but apparently, the party was somewhere further north.

i should have asked it

to dance.

    We had a huge storm here during the evening with wonderful rain, really cooled things down! Hope you get some soon .I love this beautiful little pot.

    Oh…how we’re all craving rain!!! And – what gorgeous light in that image!

    Another morning, watering my plants; all week the promise of storms that just skipped by, leaving us dry. I’m afraid the rain has a full dance card.

    I love watching lightning in the distance but in these days of drought, I keep hoping it visits me more often, too. Hope your garden gets the rain it needs soon!

    I love stopping by for my morning smile (I am not a morning person so this is a big deal to me). Thank you!

    So, yeah…I am running out of superlatives….

    I love the last line.

    Perfect title!

    Have a thunderstorm rolling through here at the moment. I’ll ask it to head back your way and make sure to have its dancing shoes on.

    That’s funny. I did the same thing last night – only I didn’t have such a pretty lamp to keep me company.
