The clouds crashed into the mountain

and splashed to the top

…little wisps of puff escaping

while the remainder spilled back down the mountainside

…like icing

on its way it caressed the trees

and rolled over mint covered chocolate hills

as it continued forth, it engulfed my van

I took a taste of the effervescent ice crystals

…it brightened my day

…and I merrily went my way
