postcards from savannah

in the dark edge of twilight
when the lightening kicks up
and the thunder rolls in
and the rain drops languidly
(heavy, warm, thick curtains)

i earn my title
(crazy aunt meriko)
by going outside
with my mug of rosť
to revel in the rain
smiling
willingly drenched
admiring the sudden storm

warm rain in the gloaming
is my very favorite thing
about the south
it says: you are welcome here
crazy aunt meriko

I'll confess, those sunset storms are one of the few things I miss about the South. Fireflies, too. Enjoy!

(Also, go have a meal at Mrs. Wilkes' Boarding House.)
