“ Pool In Thunderstorm ”



Summer dragonflies...
I love to watch them fly by,
then, a thunderstorm...


© 2018 Pamela MacCarthy
















Yesterday, my son Michio joined me,
for a swim at the local pool…

The water was somewhat cooled by recent rain…

We swam together, and we watched as the sky turned dark.
Then, what looked like a flash from a camera;
a lightning bolt came down right in front of us,
just above the water-line…

It was fun while it lasted…
