NaPoWriMo 2012 - Day #30 - over the rooftops

Whoa! the final day. usually, i will write something light or personal for the final NaPo poem. but the flu is still dragging me along and i am happy to produce anything at all...

over the rooftops

over the rooftops from which the blackbirds have passed
the clouds hung like a wet veil as the evening retreated
a flash of lightning lit up a second, white as a shroud
the wind moaned by, trapping dust and leaves in its blast.

Those short bursts of wind and rain help little in relieving us from this hot weather.

I hope you recover soon. Rest well.

And I'm very glad to have your company in NaPoWriMo this year.

It is very hard to get excited about the last day when you're not feeling well.
But Whooo Hooo, the last day! You made it! Congrats.
