A Bit of Poetry for Friday

Thunderstorm

Lightning flashes across the night sky
Turning darkness into light
Thunder rumbles deep and long
Shaking the ground like an earthquake.

Stiff winds howl through the trees
Branches whipping back and forth
Driving rain pelting the earth
Tiny puddles growing into pools.

Creatures burrow deeper
In their shelters seeking refuge
Grass and tender plants laid flat
From the onslaught of the storm.

  1. What a day this is turning out to be – can’t do without it and can’t do with too much of it.

    And yet, there are others that rejoice in the small puddles – watch carefully, and see —– life take hold 🙂
