After the Storm Premiere Contest Winner

tree frogs are singing to orange-black tinted clouds against purple sky set in the foreground an A-Frame rooftop peeks out between long-leaf pines further off due south thunder still rumbles and rolls threatening the peace a single raindrop draining from the carport roof tickles down my nose the sight and the sound of the eternal present in the perfect now

Congratulations on your win in my "Raindrops Falling" contest Tim. I had a very hard time judging this contest as most of the poems were so well written. Thank you for supporting my contest. Love, Carol
