The end of the heat wave

I've been standing at my window, watching lightning strikes rolling down from the north for about ten minutes now - just now I've heard the first peal of thunder. The wind is stupendous - within seconds (no exaggeration) of opening the screens, the temperature in the apartment dropped ten degrees.

...shit, it's like the Fourth of July out there now. Here comes the thunder!

...and now I'm rounding up all my candles and making sure I have matches.

...oh, it's raining! And by rain, I mean it's the fucking LAST WAVE.

...and the wind is pushing the rain right through the screens. Yes, it's raining inside my apartment. Fantastic!

...hmm, the thunder's so loud, my ears are ringing. Also, I seem to be growing gills. Fhtagn! At least there are no bees.

...yet.

Marine Autumn

I owe you marine autumn
With dankness at its roots
and fog like a grape
and the graceful sun of the country;
and the silent space
in which sorrows lose themselves
and only the bright crown
of joy comes to the surface.

--Pablo Neruda.
