Summer storm


Long green grasses stir in the gentle breeze

     bright summer sun beats down upon them

cool fragrant scent rises up into the air

     carried across the land in the gentle breeze


bright blossoms of yellow shine in the sun

     gently wave in the breeze as they follow the sun

their bright sent mixes into the air

     gentle summer breeze carries the scent of life


land slowly rises curving up into the sky

     forming into mountains covered in trees

rising high into the bright blue sky

     beneath bright white clouds riding high


soft white flows higher climbing into the sky

     slowly darkening turning to black

growing spreading covering the sun

     casting shadows that cover and dark the land


now racing quickly covering the bright sky

     breeze now quickening turning to wind

grasses now thrashing whipped by its strength

     flowers whip wildly torn by the wind


in the distance rain now falls down

     growing ever fiercer beating the land

coming ever nearer like a battle line

     as bright flashes appear in the sky


sound barely heard whispers distantly

     growing quickly louder coming nearer

rumbles mutter distantly heard

     growing ever louder becoming roars


drops now falling gently down

     growing quicker harder now too

hitting yellow blossoms violently hard

     blossoms close tightly curling hard


grasses assaulted by falling drops

     their weight crushing beating to the ground

flattened into the soil quickly turning to mud

     under dark sky roaring so loud


darkness is broken by bright flashing light

     thunder covers sound of rain falling down

cold wind roars carrying away all warmth

     all life is crushed by the storms might


rainfall slackens fading slowly away

     dark clouds rise lifting away

sunlight slowly pierces reaching the ground

     wind fades again to gusting breeze


dark clouds race quickly away

     sunlight now falls fully on the ground

steam rises into warming breeze

     grasses drying lift again into the sky


blossoms drying opening slow

     petals opening into the sun

fragrance again filling the air

     with scent of grasses already there


distant mountains rise into the sky

     shining in sunlight covered in trees

soft white clouds slowly fading away

     leaving the broad bright blue sky
