Thunderstorm - Poem by Katinka Havermans

Sweltering heat
Fuggy
Stifling
Sticky weather
Not knowing where
You have to go
So hot

Dark clouds
Gathering together
Piling
Drifting in
After such oppressive heat
Hoping for some refreshment
The wind swells

First still a muggy
Oppressive
Feeling
And then
Discharge
Storm Clouds
Lightning
Thunder, first very soft
Then harder

The wind's shaking the branches
Rain comes into flows
As if a faucet has burst
From above
The required coolness
Refreshing
The leaves drip
A sigh of relief
Nature breathes
