Friday Flash 55.....

.
.

SUMMER RAIN.....

Desperately in need of relief, it's always worse at night.
In that silent, dank, Moon hidden blackness
It's presence is overwhelming.
That heavy, moist, throbbing presence!
Waiting for the inevitible...
Becoming increasingly restless...
You start to feel the distant rumblings.
Closer.....Closer.....
C'mon. EXPLODE!!
Release the flood-gates...Drench ME..Soak Me!!!
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.........

.

.

If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man.
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment...Then BOOK!!!
So from the most gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!!

You promised steamy and that is exactly what you delivered with this 55.

The tropical depression headed toward South Florida right now promises to deliver a steamy day for me tomorrow. Ahhhhh...

Oh GOSH! G-Man...you MUST have meant that you were out camping, and a storm hovered directly above you, unleashing, dispensing, it's (OMG!) fury. Have I got it RIGHT this time?--big grin!

At least that's the way a real old man interprets......

I'm about ready to go and learn rain dancing skills! It's like there's an umbrella over our town and it rains everywhere BUT here. Sigh.

Good heavens, G, that was a bit suggestive, wasn't it?

And, why can't Mother Nature come up with a thunderstorm that rains beer?

And, I played this week -- I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up so well lately! My life's in the pits but that can't last forever (right?!)
