It didn’t rain

It didn’t rain

It didn’t rain
           there was no thunder
the storm passed
           and left the world intact
the trees shook a little
           bird nests were rattled
squirrels and foxes
           went to ground
and for a moment
           the sky grew dark
and menacing
           but it didn’t rain
and there was no thunder
           the storm just passed
and left the world intact
           and now it’s now
and the sun is shining
           and people are smiling
and the birds are singing
           foxes are prowling
and I am writing
           now and again
