Almost Time

Storm Approaching Naama Yehuda

(Photo: Na’ama Yehuda)


The skies darkened. A distant rumble rolled.

She stared out the window and tried to suppress the nub that tugged and pulled and nibbled at her innards. The others seemed oblivious. But she knew.

It was almost time.

She’d foreseen it.

They had dismissed her premonitions. Her knowledge of things hidden. How what she willed, was.

The clouds gathered. Answering her call.

Her mind wobbled under their layered, quickened swirl. From the effort of control.

A flash of movement.

A voice.

“Come away from the window, Ms. Bentley,” Nurse Tabitha manifested at her elbow. “It is time for your medicine.”

  1. Nothing more powerful than one who can control the elements with her mind…. that is, of course, until she is given something to turn it off… Bummer. but then again, maybe best before she gets an ulcer!

  2. Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean you’re not being followed. Poets need windows for days like today. I’d be on me duff in a sec if I went out. Hail storms, tornadoes, and bright sunlight will move me from windows in spite of all magick. 🙂 Well done, Na’ama.

  3. A great story. Atospheric and thought provoking. If she is ill, medication may take her fear and possibly terror away. If she really has ‘the sight’ — poor woman indeed. I ask with Sandra: what is real and what isn’t?

  4. Na’ama Y’karah,

    I’m not sure, but I might have whiplash from the sudden turn at the end. 😉 And this is a good thing. This story could go in so many different directions. Well done, my gifted writer friend. Thank you for the intriguing photo as well.

    Shabbat Shalom,

    • Thank you, Rochelle! I hope you don’t have story-whiplash … 😉 And … I’m not too sorry that you did a bit of a turn … because … yeah …
      And, yes, so many different directions … Thank you for the lovely words, my lovely friend! 🙂 Na’ama
