IN THE PATH OF THE STORM

storm building
as a butterfly flits past
my study window

we pick the ripe peaches
before they are lost
and I wonder if
the cicada’s staccato
love song will survive

down on the flat
the river is running rough

An update this morning – not much in the way of wind or rain.  The cyclone has definitely weakened, and is pretty much past us by now.
