A Sudden Change - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Sweltering temperatures induce a longing thirst
All motion has slowed to a thick maple syrup flow
Dogs pant and sluggish cats stretched out to nap
Sizzling heat climbs…where did summer joy go?

Shadows beneath the trees offer a brief retreat
Chirping birds have concluded their cheerful melodies
The fever of the day has depleted essential energy
Suddenly a cool wave invades… plummeting degrees

A gripping eerie sensation makes the blood run thin
The early evening sky lacks the embers of sunset rays
Shapes appear to be flattened silhouettes of monochrome
Captured by a closing shutter … ghostly images of gray

A colossal ominous cloud hovers above… miles wide
Rapid flashes of white lightening knife through the sky
Stillness is suspended in the lifeless leaves upon the trees
A search begins for a menacing monster with a fearful eye

The huge saturated blur is now releasing a gentle shower
There is a soothing reassurance that everything is all right
The refreshing cool rain eradicates uncertain worries
A long sigh of relief is followed by… 'Good-night…'
