Some other disaster

I had no inkling of her leaving,
But wait, there was something,
Something in her voice,
A predatory pause,
A laconic lull,
A seething silence,
Like you know,
What people say
They sense before an earthquake
Or some other disaster.

those premonitions are sometimes very silent but so loud in their insistance of being truth. I enjoyed the very expressive way you have used in relaying the experience. I felt this intensely.
Happy to see you back Chris. : ) kathy

For some rather obscure reason, this made me think of an old Eurovision song - really enjoyable, thanks Chris

A great simile!

(Great to see you resurface here, too.)
