Spirit in the Sky

Black menacing clouds gather above

Sharp Cracks of thunder roll around the sky

Bright lights flashes lights up the dark

Then lightening forks rush downwards

Deep sinister clouds swell in numbers

Rain batters against the window

Looking deep into this dark obscurity

What do they hide behind their darkness?

Spirits in the sky, desperate to break free

A little spot of rain

Slate clouds fill the sky

Drops of rain fall steadily

Wind whips around the trees

thunder rumbles islowly

 

The storm arrives with vengence

Rain pours from the sky heavily

It pushes its way through the sealed window

The patio becomes a pond as the water rises

 

Lightening carves its way through the slate

The water collects with nowhere to go

A branch snaps as the wind takes hold

A clap of thunder startles me

 

Slate clouds turn to pale grety

Wind blows softly

Rain drops become little spots

The water is dying away.

 

 

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.
