Last Night’s Storm

Last night we had one heck of a storm. High winds, lightning and thunder so strong it popped my ears and shook the house. It was one second between the lightning and the crack. One was so close to the house it seem to land between the leaves of our big tree.  Exciting, exhilarating  and I have to admit a little scary. The dogs were nervous and barking at every clap of thunder. The animals in the area were all participating in the orchestra of nature. The river was unusually high and rumbling. The water was going so fast down the street it formed its own waterfall into the river. Quite amazing natures rath can be.

The weather played havoc with Netflix and wi-fi. I constantly had to reboot until I gave up and read book for a while.Speaking of reading Go to and pick out one of my books. I have ten you can choose from: 1. Odes To Life and Love, poems about the forty-two years of life with Marian who passed away in 2008. 2.  Passages From Her Cards: she was the sorceress  of cards and I worked to transform her messages to me into poetry.3. Timothy M Nugent: A Collection of Poems, a myriad of poems ranging from love to politics and death. questions about the afterlife. Can you converse with love ones from the great beyond. 4.Travels With the Wild Man, Books 1,2,&3: pictures and poetry about my  travels across the USA. 8. Understanding, What can we learn and understand about ourselves and our world. 9. The Lonely Biker, A ride with a biker through his trials and tribulations of love and revenge. 10. Poems From Costa Rica, I moved to Costa Rica In June of 2015 and was inspired by the people and the beauty of the country and I work at giving you a picture of life here through poetry. I hope you enjoy my books.

Pura Vida!
The Smell of Afternoon Rain

I love the smell of afternoon rain
As it simmers off the asphalt driveway
Like a hot mistress on a sultry night
Needing more attention to satisfy her right

The steam permeates off the road
That delicious smell that holds
All your senses on high alert
Even if it is just a small spurt

A little rain helps calm the nerves
Activating the relaxation reserve
Giving your body what it deserves
A little vitality,a little verve

I love the smell of afternoon rain
On a hot Sunny day
The smell you know is a treat
When hot and cool meet
