The air was thick and humid.

Heat trapped beneath the thickening clouds above made everything feel close. Tense. The light, subdued a little by the cloud cover, had a yellowish tinge to it.

Every so often the silence was broken by a long rumble of thunder. And within the rumbles came the occasional bright flash of lightning. Just a flash, no bolts or streaks.

My legs felt heavy as I walked. It felt as though I was walking against something, as though something was pushing me back every step I made. But I had to keep going. I had to keep moving forward.

I had to get back before the rains came. The signs were all there, a storm was definitely rolling in.

One step in front of the other, clothes stuck to my body as I moved. I had to keep going.

โ€ฆBut the rains would have been welcome.

  1. Very well written Tom. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

    Yes the weather has been turbulent hasn’t it?

    Where I am we saw only one minor thunderstorm and a few cooling showers.

    My home is a heat sink though, so I am reduced to wearing just boxers during the day so I don’t upset my neighbours!

    Hopefully we won’t see too many deluges as the flash flooding has harmed a lot of people.

    Humidity is still 90% so we are a storm waiting to happen! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ โค

    Blessed be my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค
