Summer Storm

Clouds rolling on the horizon
Winds picking up force
Trees swaying to and fro
Summer storm is upon us

Darkness sweeps over like a blanket
Veiling the sky of blue
Whirlwinds of leaves and dust
Summer storm is upon us

Distant thunder rumbles
Pealing louder as it rolls in
Lightning flashes across the darkening sky
Summer storm is upon us

Raindrops falling in staccato
Then increasing their tempo
Soon falling in sheets
Summer storm is upon us

Winds blowing wildly
Trees swinging menacingly
Thunder booms, lightning bursts
Summer storm is upon us

Puddles, broken twigs and branches
Is all that's left in its wake
Clearing skies, rainbow arcs
Summer storm has passed us
