Poem: The Storm

The Storm

We watched the lightning

flash in the mountains

silent not a sound

the moon hidden by rain clouds

shone through with eerie light

waves began to roar

as the wind whipped our faces

yet we tarried on

enjoying our warmth

the memory of the sea.

The moon broke away from the clouds

and shone down upon us,

onto the lake,

we thought

the storm had passed us by


a flash lit the night sky

with a booming voice!

We hurried away

not wishing


get wet

little did we know

we’d watched the storm

filling our house with rain.

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
