For those of you who have occasion to know why this song is fitting for me, you should get a giggle. No sense looking at the screen, there is not a video attached. Merely listen to the music as you read. It sets the mood…perfectly.


The pelting grows
softer, but only for
the moment.
It is the calm in
between the

First came the flurry
of crackling
Then ravenous
thunder peals

The rivulets stream steadily
smooth from the
eave’s edge.
Freckles dot the view
through inky

They are all to be seen since
the Cheshire moon

Bullied by roiling

Despite hundreds of thousands
of miles in between
The sky simply

 I hope you have had a pleasant and restful weekend.

      I did not fall into spaghetti westerns until most of the character actors were dead. It brings be to a different time, which I have had the chance to partake in dribs and drabs. They all remind me of my great grandparents’ farm. The countryside could have been the set of any of those movies. {HUGZ} Red.
