"Approaching Storm", A Painting and Musing #2

Last August I was sitting in our backyard at dusk, watching
a summer storm approaching from the west.
Included at the end of this post is a painting entitled
 "Approaching Storm"

Backyard Musings #2
" Evening Storm Approaching "

Sat. 8-28-15

Two doves and a cardinal are eating at the bird feeder.
The temperature has dropped a little as a slightly cool breeze blows gently through the trees.
From the Southeast comes the distant rumble of thunder.
The big trees to the east start to gracefully sway as the
wind sweeps through them.
They are like giant fingers dancing back and forth to the
rhythm of nature's song.
Lightning then thunder moves closer as the breeze gets even cooler.
The doves have gone replaced by a family of cardinals still pecking at the seed both on the ground and in the feeder.
The cicadas are buzzing their nightly tune and a blue jay is chirping in the neighbor's tree.
The trees are like dancers performing, dipping down then lifting their arms to the evening sky.
The thunder claps its applause as streaks of lightening
light up the eastern sky.
Dusk descends into darkness.
The birds have flown to the safety of their nests.
I sit watching and waiting for the rain as the jagged lighting draws ever closer.
Ah I feel a rain drop!
