Symphony of the thunderstorm


When the clouds gather in the sky
and their thrusting brings about lightning
that lights up the heaven
in a electrical display
that delights the senses
but also simultaneously gives you a fright
as the roaring the thunder dances

and it is as if heaven itself is opening up
for a concert
where the universe is invited
and the drums are loud
and echo through the silence of the night
and roars into a crescendo
that is much like Beethoven’s symphony number five

and the display ends with the howling wind
and rain in thousands of little drums beats
on the roof of the house
while the roaring thunder fades away
in the distance
as the flashes of lightning is dimmed
and only the softness of the rain remains
to transform the night into something beautiful.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
