Poem: Moment Before A Storm

Moment Before A Storm
Dark clouds hang low
Rumblings of restiveness
Pregnant and impatient

Wind blusters across vacant ground
Trees tremble in anticipation

The world lost in thought
Pensive moment of quiet
Before that first drop of rain

I was walking the dog one morning. Sky was overcast. Was that loveliest of moments, that instant before the rain, you can smell the rain in the air, the wind blowing and no one around except my dog and me, my mind free from worry. So I wrote the poem to preserve that moment in time, mainly for myself.
