big storm is coming!

crop shimmers and shakes
a storm is brewing
ground cracks and creaks
storm is approaching

air’s heavy
wind’s blowing
clouds creeping
crawling and roaring
big storm is coming…

This piece emanated from an emotive capture of an approaching storm by the wonderful artist and bubbler, Sharon.
I hope you enjoy this, but more importantly, the piece which inspired it and sharon’s portfolio.

An avid photographer, both still and moving, since I was 10 years old, I later discovered and developed a particular love of macro, which is one of my main genres. More recently, however, my repertoire has broadened to include stained glass windows and particularly the stunning beauty of outback New South Wales and South Australia.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of the Creation, captured and presented here for you.

    Fits it very well Jan. Great writing.

  • Thank you Gail…Sharon’s capture of this scene is powerful and emotive. The fact that you feel my writing ‘fits it very well’ is the ultimate compliment. For I just want to enhance and honour her great work; without her this writing would not have been possible, or even exist!!!
