Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Another story inspired by a Daily Create:

A double rainbow — Somewhere in Big Sky Country — Montana, my mom’ birthday, July 18th, 2019

Big skies get double rainbows, and a lot of lightning… about an hour after this, still in the Big Sky Storm, we had to pull over into a closing Dairy Queen due to lightning.

We had received an alert on our phone to get to cover. The rain was pouring down and the lighting lit up the sky around us.

We took the message seriously, and the closers at the Dairy Queen welcomed us in as they cleaned up and allowed us to wait there until the lightning area of the storm passed by.

Thank goodness for Big Sky Good Neighbors!

And a reminder that “We’re all in this together.”

After the Rainbow

Big Sky Double Rainbow
Still the storm closed in
Sky lit with lightning
Slamming heaven down
Danger! Danger!
Coming danger!
Neighborly townsfolk
invite us in, protection
from the passing storm;
Perhaps the heavens
rained this warning:
stay neighbors
when storms danger
warns our nation’s
fragile tale.
