I accept.
Here goes….

You’ve stolen my thunder Fan. My poem “Storm’ has been gathering in my notebook. You are honoured to see the first verse…..

Kaboom kaboom……

(Rolling thunder)


Distant storm clouds black with menace
Watching/waiting (me)
We come to get you Don they holler
We watch, we pounce, you see

kaboom kaboom……

I’m getting a bit worried Fan.
Talking clouds I don’t know how to handle……..

Should I shout back “You can’t catch me haha?…….

Seriously, the write is based on a storm
which attacked me the other day.
Opened the heavens with hail and buckets of…….

Foiled it. Scurried to shelter with a coffee.
Haha’d it. Turned nasty on me. Shit I thought………

I should have done a Jesus. ‘ “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves, and they ceased,
and there was a calm’…………

That’s what I get for not paying attention in church……….

It passed over and went for an easier prey.
Saved by the grace of Freyr – god of good weather and sunshine.
Narrow escape Fan…….


Fan’s response

Quite an adventure. Dark, talking clouds, booming thunder, buckets of hail, praying for redemption, narrow escape. Wow. I’m exhausted just reading this.
