It was going to rain so it was overcast and cool; the air had that swollen feeling, like a watermelon ripe to burst; there was a eerie quiet despite traffic sounds in the distance. I could hear the birds sing with clarity, smell the pond, feel the brush of the wind. Everything was poised for something to happen …
But it never did. No rain yet.
Still, a perfect morning on record.
