fog creeps in on kitten paws

bringing spring and warmth and thunderstorms, windows open,
curtains billowing in the breeze.

it’s amazing how such a simple thing can make me so happy.

yesterday morning, this was the view from my backyard.

last night was hours and hours of lightning, thunder rumbling,
pouring rain.

cats climbing into bed with us like children to wait out the storm.

almost, a flooded basement. but the rain let up just in time.

and overnight, the world is twice as green.

lush.

verdant.

now there’s a word.

::

wishing you a weekend filled
with things you love best.
