Summer Storm

When you can’t think of anything else to say, just talk about the weather. 🙂

Thunder claps in the early light

Daytime turns as black as night

Wild wind gusts in keening blusters

Birds in trees cry out, a sign of life

As mankind burrows safely indoors

Turn out all the lights inside

Embrace this somber darkness

As nature intends for the day

Listen in silence, make no sound

As the world continues to go round

Darkness passes by late afternoon

For a few short, fleeting hours

The sun still shines for today
