A British earthquake

A very loud noise

Rumbled above

Like a herd of elephants

Partying on the roof

Blinds shook and clattered

Dog hid under the chair

Tremors were recorded

On the Richter scale

Coffee splashed gently

Inside its mug

Just for a moment

The earth almost moved

In this very British earthquake.

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.
