Slice of Life, March 24th-- "First Storm of Spring"

Thick, bubbling clouds replaced sun

Wind whipped through the open window

Blowing papers off walls and startling students with its suddenness

A coolness crept in to mix with the warmth

A hushed dimness cooled the light

Causing day to feel slightly muted

Thunder rolled in slowly

Lightning creased the heavy sky

Raindrops fell from dark clouds with intention

Splattering the pavement with large spots

Harder and harder it fell, until finally hail came, too

Pieces of ice littered the driveway, almost like the seasons got confused

Evidence of winter in spring.



Appreciate the power and beauty of a thunderstorm

For a moment--

And then, as quickly as a moved in, it is gone

Leaving only raindrops on leaves and a memory

Of the first storm of spring.
