Storm


Dark clouds gathering
rain beating down, swirling,
thunder roaring
lightning flashing
crackling down to earth

Electrified air -

- turning into malevolent eyes
Shock - gasping for breath

    Sometimes a storm does feel malevolent; and the thunder seems to know your name- and the

    Succinct and descriptive. The shock part reminds me of how brief and ferocious some storms can be. The other shock thing is when a thunder clap seems to boom above your home. (Report) Reply
