A Blustery Night

One of the scariest things to me is a gust of strong wind...maybe because it's unpredictable. I had a meeting tonight and upon my return home I had to battle with the wind and the swirling dust as I walked to the front door of the house...in the dark no less! I didn't expect the door to be locked and naturally tried to push my way indoors, but gramma had locked the dead bolt (hey!...why is it called a "dead bolt"?...that's a disturbing thot)...anyways...I fumbled around for my keys and of course I had a bit of trouble with that...all the while getting nervous because my thoughts personify the wind and I have a sensation that it is grabbing at me...ready to carry me off to an unknown place...not OZ...but to a frightening place...I know...I'm strange! lol. Well, I finally get the right key and quickly open the door, adrenaline pumping, back rigid...and I run inside, slam the door, and lock the dead bolt! Wheeeew! just in time!...before the monster grabs me! (lol...like in the horror movies)...and I am safe and sound with just a cold shiver up my spine! Tomorrow morning I will go outside and see what has been flung around throughout the night wind storm...cleaning up in the aftermath. It sounds spooky outside...the winter wind is howling.

Love your "poeticness" (that's a Christy word"! Now being carried off to Oz which the last I heard was in Kansas... and in my opinion that IS a pretty frightening place! LOL
