Day 5 ... no idea what to write yet ...

prompt: a plus poem

Warm air rising (27 degrees in my town today)
plus atmospheric receptivity makes grey clouds
bulge from a brilliant blue sky. Just the right
amount of condensation plus unknown factors
of air movement, and the whole cloud cracks
and breaks open and we have a flash flood
right here in our back yard, and a waterfall
off the roof that's meant to feed a steady stream
into the second tank.

To be frank, it is hard to hear myself think.
That plus the gloomy light, and this the last
day of daylight saving, plus the heat that
preceded and provoked this storm makes me
happy I  brought sheets and clothes in off
the line, just in time, and can sit typing.
