Above the Lightning

above the clouds

Below dark cloud

With pockets of white

Turbulent air

Forcefully dropping

Heart in mouth

Lightning flashes

Below us

Fast and bright

Below the dark clouds

Lighting up them up

For a moment

My breath is held.

White clouds appeared

Blue sky all around

Bright moon in the distance

Clear once again

Breaking the Peace

Dark sultry humid night, sleep is hard.

A bright light flashes through the gap in the curtains

A crack of thunder fills my ears

There is silence again, no rumble

Sheets of  bright light fill the sky,

Bolts of lightning  race to the ground at speed

It looks like it’s ripping the sky in two

Simultaneously the thunder cracks

The noise is deafening, breaking the peace

Wind whips through the trees

Huge rain drops fall from the sky

Then as fast as it arrived,

The sound of thunder rolls slowly away,

The lightening disappears from the sky

The wind and rain die away

There is peace once more

and the air remains humid and sultry.
