Before dawn, i rise, taking on the tasks of the day. Elated at the thought of accomplishment
only to be letdown by reality. Blue skies contrast a grey mood, elevated by caffeine and wishful thinking
i, blinking back transparency holdfast. Another tempest approaches; howling winds, rain that shifts sideways suddenly.
Then sudden calm.
This frightens me.
Eventually though, the storm passes overhead; moving onward to the next town over.
