Storm Brewing


Rain streams

in never-ending rivulets,


obscures vision.


The unremitting

rhythmic wurr



of wiper-blades

irritates, marks time

as you sit behind the wheel

fix-gazed on anything but me.


This is an oft travelled road,

I anticipate the coming storm,

sense the thunder,

wonder what will precipitate

the squall.


I watch the blades

raise the tempo

as they swish to and fro,

aggravate existing fury,

heavens darken, heighten fear

and you glance at me hate-faced

and I know the time is near –

tis not only skies that will blacken.
