Treasure Island

Valerie Dohren

(13 January 1947 / Southport)

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
    lightning, where you are hiding from it! Lovely verse. (Report) Reply

    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

Far south the lift,
