Yesterday, we had a gift of a storm.  It was a gift in the middle of a busy week because they cancelled school.  It’s so nice to have an unexpected day off.  The storm caused minimal damage, a tree on a roof here or there, some flooding, but for the most part all was well.  I did get to meet with my student writing group, though.  We worked on writing by looking outside and looking in.  Then we revised.  I caught this rather sing songy poem, but I like it.

Light a candle
Load the laundry
Escape into a book
Spring storm,
You offer a promise–
the gift of time alone.
