Came and Went and Came Again. By CpSingleton © 2016
I hear a raucous crash of thunder and
The child inside gets giddy!
He wants to slip my grip and
Sprint to the front door
To see if the sky will split
With flashes of lightning.
I follow him with a grin of my own.
By the time he opens the door the sky is decidedly
The child turns around with solemn frown
Returning to my side once more.
The far off sky growls
Jim takes a drag of his joint.
The music begins to play…
