Another storm warning.

Cotton clouds turn into coal smoke,

Flashes splice the sky.

We’re drenched by pelting rain,

until it blows by again.

Wouldn’t it be nice

if the newscaster flashed

storm warnings

about flashes of temper

and drenching tears,

so we knew to stay indoors

or prepare our rain gear?

  1. Down here, we are sometimes dealing with dry lightning, especially this month. There is a lot of dry lightning coming out of Washington, these days, as well.

    Well, it might be nice but not interesting in the long run I suppose 🙂
