Rolling In



VICE VERSA
asks us to use these four words

gather/scatter: harmony/discord

ROLLING IN

The storm-clouds gather in black formation.
The scatter of rain  brings anticipation.
Life no longer sings in harmony
As thunder's discord rolls over the sea.

BIG DIFFERENCE!

A Tourist went to a small hotel and asked for information
About the various types of room and the cost of accommodation.
'We have different prices for singles and for those rooms that are shared
And our rooms have baths or showers' the Receptionist declared.
What's the difference between a bath and shower?' the Tourist then inquired,
And the answer the desk-clerk gave him was utterly inspired!
After he'd mulled it over and thought a little bit
He said 'I think in one you stand; in the other one you sit'.

You made good use of the vice/versa words.

I like this capture--the picture and your words. And the humor piece at the end was a nice little bonus!
