As long as I can see the light

Going to return something at my favorite store

Dark clouds in the distance

Radio warned of flooding

As I looked at the clouds

I wondered

Which way is the wind blowing

Will it meet me some where in the middle

I pressed on

Ominous clouds black like cancer

Clinging in the sky on my right

Sprinkles of a flash rain spilled from the sky

Suddenly stopping

I did my return

I saw a light in the distance

Drove toward the light

Stopped at a fast food joint

for a bite

The sky was clear

After going through several towns

The server said be safe

hurry home a storm is coming

I laughed to myself

Thinking I’ve already beat it.
