At dusk last night a huge storm rolled in from the north – the tail end of the monsoons that are currently drenching northern Australia. Thunder crashed, lightning flashed and heavy rain fell.
The flag flying outside the patriot’s house on the corner fluttered valiantly in the wind.
The ladder leaning against my neighbour’s fence offered access to the heavens –
zen like in it’s graphic monumentality –
Rain slicked the roof tops
The lighted window in the two storey house across the road glowed
as children watched in awe
